Wine Tasting Notes: 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. 93% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot - Alcohol 15.1%


96 Points Wine Advocate: The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Dancing Bear Ranch (a blend of 93% Cabernet Sauvignon and 7% Merlot aged 22 months in about 50% new French oak) has a dense purple color, wonderfully sweet cassis fruit and blackberries, with a touch of mulberry, forest floor and underbrush. Full-bodied, rich, concentrated and super-pure, this beauty is young, but accessible, yet I don't see it hitting its prime for another 7-8 years. This is a 30+ year wine that should provide compelling drinking when fully mature.
