From our perspective, today’s culture has become a golden age for products in food & wine, along with the desire to know not only how they are grown and prepared but the stories behind the people involved in producing them that makes these products even more extraordinary. Reserved almost exclusively for the affluent, never before have we lived in an era where the public at large is as curious about and educated in what they consume, where it originated – including notable ingredients, production techniques and now more-so, how to consume them with optimal pleasure.

B Cellars Vineyards and Winery is pleased to introduce a wonderful, new boutique Napa Valley winery to a community of passionate wine enthusiasts looking for a longstanding relationship with a wine brand who cares deeply about your interests. This is an exciting opportunity for B Cellars to meet new friends sharing a passion for handcrafted wines and chance to enjoy them in a beautiful destination winery dedicated to a highly personal and interactive hospitality experience.

While 2003 celebrated our inaugural vintage, September 2015 marked B Cellars first anniversary in its new winery located in the prestigious sub-appellation of Oakville. Built ground-up, we’re situated in the epicenter of Napa’s premium Cabernet county.

We are the first winery to open in 18 years on what is known locally, simply as the “Cross Road”. Our neighbor wineries define the heritage of this important passage between Highway 29 and the Silverado Trail – the two north-south arteries running the length of the Valley. Our immediate neighbors include:

Opus One, Silver Oak, Groth, Plumpjack, Gargiulo & Rudd

Then to the east on the Silverado Trail side of the Cross Road is

Screaming Eagle, Dalle Valle & Miner

To the west as you enter the Cross Road from Highway 29 you have

Far Niente, Nickel & Nickel and Robert Mondavi

To this great neighborhood, B Cellars Vineyards and Winery introduced a new and exciting winery experience.

2014 Chardonnay

Maldonado Vineyard

100% Chardonnay

650 Cases Produced 

 

Our Maldonado Vineyard Chardonnay hails from one of the coolest regions in the Napa Valley AVA. The warm days and cool nights are perfect for producing premium Chardonnay.

This wine bursts with notes of citrus fruits, key lime pie, green apple, with subtle hints of warm spice box and toasted coconut. Crisp on the palate, this wine shows great minerality, excellent balance, with a distinct and lengthy finish.

Part of our Signature Series, our 2014 Maldonado Vineyard Chardonnay is a perfect addition to our single-vineyard designates. We are generally known for doing unique white and red blends with a handful of single vineyard Cabernets and Syrahs.

However, this vintage presented us with an opportunity to showcase this beautiful Chardonnay as a stand-alone bottling. This Chardonnay comes from the 10-acre Maldonado Vineyard located in Jameson Canyon.

60% Cabernet Sauvignon

30% Cabernet Franc

10% Merlot

550 cases produced

 

The 2014 Blend unites Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot to create an elegant red blend, though still considered a Cabernet Sauvignon. Hours upon hours of assemblage take place prior to determining the composition of this special wine. Carefully integrated, we believe the whole surpasses the sum of its parts.

Explosive classic cabernet notes of dried cherries, black currents, and cassis are followed by subtle undertones of sweet tobacco and cedar box.

The rich and smooth palate is laden with intricate layers of black cherry, bramble berry, dark cocoa and espresso bean.

Blend 26 is a wine crafted to seduce the palate from the first encounter.
