Pursued by Bear 2017 Bear Cub
Bear Cub is a youthful, lively wine bursting with fresh, ripe berry aromas and flavors. Juicy boysenberry and wild raspberry are wonderfully expressive on the palate, with a hint of cherry pie and flecks of shaved cocoa adding dimension. Beautifully balanced, the Cub has more than enough structure to stand up to the big boys! Complex flavors are achieved by sourcing grapes from six distinct vineyards, including sites located in the Horse Heaven Hills, Wahluke Slope and Walla Walla Valley. Handpicked Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot were sorted, gently fermented and aged in tight grain French oak barrels with thick staves to allow the fruit and oak to integrate slowly. Syrah, aged in 600L Taransaud puncheons, adds richness and depth to the mid-palate.
Composition: 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Merlot, 17% Syrah
