Bell 2005 Talianna Proprietary Red Blend captures the unique fruit expressions of the winery's most important varietals. The rich, luscious fruit of the Syrah combines with the supple tannins and elegant structure of the Cabernet Sauvignon to produce a wine with exceptional fruit on both the nose and palate. As the Talianna ages, it acquires more of the dusty, cedary characters one associates with mature Rutherford Cabernets, but with a softer side brought on by their Estate Syrah. The resulting wine has a beautiful balance between fruit, oak, tannins and acidity with an elegant finish.
