2016 Bela's Selection Pinot Noir

Sweepstakes Winner of the 2018 Harvest Fair!

The Buena Vista Vinicultural Society, formed in 1863 by the winery's founder, Count Agoston Haraszthy, to further improve its winemaking prowess and expand its vineyards, has been restored as a collection of unique, small-production wines that honor the winery's pioneering spirit and contribution to California winemaking.

Ruby colored in the glass, our 2016 Bela’s Selection Pinot Noir opens with soft dark fruit aromas of black cherry, blackberry, black cardamom spice and a touch of earthy notes and shitake mushroom. Richly layered flavors of fresh ripe fruits spread across the palate and are complemented by balanced acidity. A nicely structed wine with silky, round tannins, this Pinot Noir has a long and smooth lingering finish.

Named for Count Haraszthy’s youngest son, Bela’s Selection Pinot Noir hails from two vineyards in the Sebastopol Hills area of the Russian River Valley. Planted to clones 115, 667, Pommard and 23, the vineyards are farmed for their perfect Pinot Noir growing conditions and excellent terroir. Once harvested, the whole berries were fermented in small open-top oak vats with hand punch downs, and stirred on the lees. The wine was aged for 13 months in 100% French oak barrels and bottled unfiltered.
