Pursued By Bear 2016
Aromas of black cherry and dusty eucalyptus and flavours 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 these characteristics with subtle aromas of cigar box and a hint of mocha also present across a textured mouthfeel that gives way to a long, 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.
