’16

pursued by bear

cabernet sauvignon

Aromas of black cherry and dusty eucalyptus and flavors of cassis, cranberry and dark fruits have been the hallmarks of Pursued by Bear Cabernet Sauvignon since its debut in 2005. The 2016 vintage offers similar characteristics, with subtle aromas of cigar box and a hint of mocha also present across a textured mouthfeel that gives way to a long, persuasive finish.

The wine spent 28 months in Taransaud new French oak barrels. The tight grain and thick staves allow for longer barrel aging and create tannins that are integrated and refined.
