Winemaker's Notes

(From 2011 Vintage) Our 2011 Dancing Bear Ranch – a blend of 85% cabernet sauvignon, 13% cabernet franc and 2% merlot – presents a characteristically perfumed nose of blackberry compote, dark plum, blueberry and loganberry complemented by sweet oak and forest-floor spice scents. Dense and powerful on the palate, it offers deeply concentrated black fruit flavors that are augmented on the long, savory finish by briary spice, mineral and dark chocolate tones. Boasting great structure and balance, firm, but supple tannins and tremendous reserves of fruit, our 2011 Dancing Bear will age beautifully in bottle for at least a decade.
