Packed with an abundance of fruit character, Bear Flag Cabernet Sauvignon opens with notes of black raspberries, red cherry jam and dried fruit. Silky smooth on your tongue, things get interesting when subtle layers of clove, cedar, luscious butterscotch and cocoa kick in.

Blended of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Petite Sirah, 2% Petit Verdot and 2% Merlot, the deep garnet-purple colored 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon offers fragrant cassis, blackberries and chocolate box notions with hints of pencil shavings, cinnamon, violets, sautéed herbs and damp soil. Medium to full-bodied, the palate has a rock-solid structure of grainy tannins and great freshness, finishing with a lively herbal lift. 12,500 cases produced.

Friendly cherry pie and plum notes take the lead here, with a savory edge sliding in on the moderately toasty finish. Drink now through 2022. 12,500 cases made.

This approachable wine is classic in black olive and black currant, with a balanced midpalate of weight and ripeness. Sweet oak supports a taste of pine and chocolate-covered espresso beans that linger awhile.
