Jeb Dunnuck 95 Points : “Incorporating 10% Merlot and brought up in new oak, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon reveals a deep purple hue as well as fabulous notes of crème de cassis, tobacco leaf, damp earth, chocolate, and truffle. Rich and medium to full-bodied, with beautiful purity, it’s a fabulous wine from this estate. It will evolve for two decades.”
Robert Parker: “Framed by dense, chewy dark fruit essence, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon opens with aromas of Christmas spice, leather, blackberry tart, cassis, currant, vanilla and cinnamon baking spices with no hard edges. Full-bodied, the wine is generous and offers a balanced structure across the mid-palate with succulent fine-grained tannins and ends with a long, winding finish, highlighting elements of chocolate-covered blueberries, mocha and vanilla spice.”
Winemaker Notes: “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.”
