Bond, Quella 2018 Napa Valley

17.5

Quella is a derivation of the German word for a pristine source or an artesian aquifer. Quella originates from a 9-acre site located in Spring Valley, in the eastern hills above the heart of the Napa Valley. The site is an ancient riverbed composed of cobble and rocks interwoven with pockets of tufa (volcanic ash) that were uplifted during the last volcanic activity in the area. This site is steeply sloped facing south-west. The elevation of the vineyard is between 433 and 595 feet.
A bit more obviously Cabernet Sauvignon on the nose and in the glass. Precise, refined, firm tannins and lovely oak allied with an almost perfect combination of dark currant fruit and spicy acidity. Subtle, brooding, all the components in place for a great future. (AWH)
