    About This Wine

    Our 2010 Dancing Bear Cabernet presents a nose of dense, earthy, ripe black fruits – primarily blackberry and dark plum – complemented by cocoa, anise, pepper and Asian spice scents. Beautifully structured on the palate, its rich, deeply concentrated, boysenberry, fig, mountain spice and dark chocolate flavors are framed by fine-grained tannins and culminate in a long, spicy finish featuring savory oak, blackberry and mineral tones. Aged 19 months in 39% new French oak, this youthful mountain Cabernet is delicious now with hearty foods, but will develop even greater dimension and character over the next decade. Located on the slopes of Howell Mountain in northern Napa Valley, our Dancing Bear Estate estate vineyard is planted on steep hillsides reaching elevations over 1,800 feet.
