B & E Vineyard Does Paso Robles Proud

| September 11, 2012

Jerry and Patricia Bello, proprietors of B & E Vineyard, a small family-owned and operated winery, originally planted 25 acres of Cabernet Sauvignon in 1989, then added 25 acres of Merlot and 8 acres of other reds primarily used for blending. They have had their grapes contracted out to other wineries since the early 90’s and in 1994 started making their own wine, but did not label any for sale until 2002.

Recently the team at DFW was fortunate enough to sample three extraordinary wines fro

m B & E. The 2007 Red Rhythm, a Bordeaux-Rhone blend is a rich, mouthful of fruit, with a beautiful finish. With awards including 2010 Best of Class & Judges Choice / Gold- San Francisco Chronicle 2010, at $30 this is a must try!

The 2009 Reserve Merlot is another velvety offering with dark cherry and hints of cinnamon. This is delicious paired, or will stand solidly on its own.

However, it was the 2009 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon which is barrel aged in French oak for 22 months that has as scrambling for more. At $30 per bottle, this youngster was loaded with great tannins and was simply wonderful.
