Bear Flag Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
|Region||California, Sonoma County|
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.
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.
