    About This Wine

    Bright, high-toned aromas of ripe boysenberry, blackberry and dark cherry fruit are coupled with fascinating floral and forest-floor spice scents in the captivating nose of this wonderfully complex mountain cabernet. Dense and deeply concentrated on the palate, the 2015 Dancing Bear Cabernet offers intense black fruit flavors that segue into an extremely long, lush, dark-fruit finish laced with invigorating spice and mineral tones. Beautifully structured by big, but supple tannins and fresh acidity, the 2015 vintage, despite its intensity, displays a charming elegance. Still in its formative years, this mountain jewel will glitter even more brightly with another decade’s aging. Sourced from our Dancing Bear Ranch estate vineyards, located on the rugged slopes of Howell Mountain in northern Napa Valley.
