    About This Wine

    The nose of our 2009 Dancing Bear Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon offers the pure, high-toned, deeply concentrated aromas we have come to associate with this wine: ripe dark cherry, boysenberry, blackberry and plum fruit complemented by subtle earth, floral spice, forest floor and cocoa tones. In the mouth, the wine is rich, deep and juicy with mouthfilling dark cherry, boysenberry, cassis, plum and cedar flavors that take on a pronounced brambly spice tone in the remarkably long, savory finish. While this vintage of Dancing Bear is precociously forward in its youth, its superb structure and deep, expansive fruit suggest it will develop beautifully in bottle for at least a 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.
