’08

baby bear

  syrah 

Rich and opulent, this inky Syrah brings out the best from two worlds of wine. Earthen mountain berries, licorice, and spice combine with lush black cherry pie. Only two puncheons made of this memorably massive Syrah.

The inaugural vintage 2008 ‘Baby Bear’ was conceived as a small production Syrah that celebrates the year of my son’s birth. Baby Bear began its life in two phenomenal Washington State vineyards — Phinny Hill and Lewis. After spending over two years cradled in new French oak Puncheon barrels, and one year hibernating in the bottle, we are the proud parents of a healthy, robust, and delicious Syrah!
