2016 BEL LAGO TEMPESTA – For those who believe Michigan can’t deliver a high-quality red wine on par with the best wine regions, Tempesta proves them wrong. This exceptional blend is only crafted during outstanding vintages that are worthy of carrying the Tempesta label. Even then, Bel Lago’s winemakers painstakingly review each barrel of wine that is considered to be a contender for the blend, choosing only a select few deemed the absolute best. The result is a wine perfuming temperate, dark fruit and toasted oak that uncovers a harmoniously integrated flavor experience. Floral, fruity and earthy, with hints of chocolate and leather, Tempesta is an elegant wine that is ready to impress.

2016 BEL LAGO CAB FRANC – After blending Cabernet Franc for more than two decades, Bel Lago’s winemakers began producing this varietal on its own several years ago as a small-batch, reserve wine. Barrel-aged for 34 months, our Cabernet Franc has a refined oak fragrance of campfire, ground coffee and cherry wood. Flavors of pomegranate and tart cherries open up the wine, while notes of lemon zest, forest floor and peppercorn round out the finish. With its deep, plum hue and silky tannins, this wine is versatile enough to stand up to hearty, red meats and delicate enough to enjoy with cheese.
