’18

bear cub

  red wine 

The 2018 Bear Cub is a youthful, vibrant wine with ripe berry aromas and an appealing hint of vanilla bean. Rich and flavorful on the palate, wild raspberry, black currant, and dark stone fruit mingle with a streak of dark cocoa. A playful sibling to our Pursued by Bear Cab, the Cub is a bright, hedonistic wine that offers fresh fruit flavors now but also has enough structure to age beautifully over time.

Grapes sourced from six distinct vineyards, including sites located in the Horse Heaven Hills, Wahluke Slope, and Walla Walla Valley, give this wine layered complexity. Handpicked Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot were sorted, gently fermented, and aged in tight grain French oak barrels with thick staves to slowly integrate the fruit and oak. Just a touch of Syrah, aged in 600L Taransaud puncheons, adds richness and depth to the mid-palate.
