Production Notes
This offers up a solidly ripe core of crushed plum and warmed cassis notes laced with toasted vanilla, tobacco and a flash of loam. Light savory thread through the finish injects cut and energy. Best from 2021 through 2031. —J.M.
Tasting Notes
Our debut vintage from Bear Track Vineyard delivers a wine perfumed with elegant rose petal, blueberry, blackberry and black cassis notes. On the palate, the same elegant floral and fruit notes are found, in tandem with savory elements such as sage and black olive tapenade. This spectacular hillside wine is certain to age with grace over the next several years.
Vineyard Notes
Bear Track Vineyard is planted in three terraced blocks on the eastern hillsides of Napa Valley, just outside of the Howell Mountain AVA. The cool climate and iron-rich, volcanic ash soils result in small, tight clusters of concentrated fruit. Ample hang time before harvest yields a Cabernet Sauvignon with intense, dark fruit flavors and integrated tannins.
