TASTING NOTE: Bella Terra is the top tier at Pond View. This CF is hand harvested from vines at least 28 years old and cropped to two tonnes per acre. It's aged in mostly French oak for 20+ months and bottled unfiltered. As Di Profio says, \"it's still a baby.\" Indeed. Such a bold nose of concentrated field raspberry, bramble, mulled herbs, violets, currants and toasted vanilla and oak spices. It's a classically styled Niagara CF on the palate with bold cherry, graphite, a range of red berries, herbs, black currants and spice notes all well travelled through a long finish. Buy, hold, enjoy in 3-5 years (maybe more). Score - 91 (Rick VanSickle, winesinniagara.com, July 7, 2017) Price $ 39.95
