    2020 Red Wine Releases

    Listen in as as our Winemaker, John Hazak, takes us through our recently released 2020 red wines. This is John's first vintage start to back with Bell Wine Cellars and he is excited and proud of this release. 2020 brought challenges with drought and fires. The good thing about 2020 is the quality we did bring in was great, but there is not much of it. The 2020's are fitting with current trends of 18's, 19's, 20's and 21's. Our 2020 wines are exemplary of what Napa can do and certainly age worthy. 2020 Release Clone 7, Clone 338, Clone 191, 169, 337, Reserve Cab
