Cakebread Dancing Bear Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon 2013
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Howell Mountain|
Dancing Bear reflects the intense characteristics of its rugged mountain terroir and the hard work required to cultivate this special site. Dense aromas of ripe boysenberry, dark plum and cassis are layered with scents of loam, forest-floor spice and dark chocolate. On the expansive palate, intense, concentrated flavors of blackberry, black cherry, boysenberry, plum and chocolate are balanced by well-structured, ripe tannins and culminate in a very long, persistent finish highlighting dark berry, earthy spice and mineral tones. Beautifully balanced and structured for long-term aging, this intense, complex mountain red is still a youngster and will benefit from another decade of aging. Food Pairing: Pair with steak, braised meats, ribs or roasts.
