Barrel notes are upfront, with aromas of vanilla, cocoa and spice followed by plum and cherry. A flavorful palate follows, intertwining fruit and barrel that stay together seamlessly through the finish.
"The debut release of our Bear Cub Red Wine is a Cabernet Sauvignon-dominate blend, youthful and vibrant with bright, fresh fruit aromas and flavors. Black cherry and cola, with hints of vanilla bean and shaved cocoa, fill the glass. Soft and lush on the mid- palate, inviting dark fruit flavors, notably wild blackberry, blueberry pie and cassis, linger across a silky finish. Generous layers of complex flavors are achieved by sourcing grapes from eight distinct vineyards, including sites located in the Horse Heaven Hills, Wahluke Slope, Red Mountain and Walla Walla Valley. Handpicked Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot were sorted, gently fermented and aged in tight grain French oak barrels with thick staves to allow the fruit and oak to integrate slowly. Syrah, aged in 600L Taransaud puncheons, adds richness and depth to the mid-palate." -Kyle MacLachlan (oowner and vintner)
