Cakebread Cabernet Dancing Bear

U.S.A.: CALIFORNIA - RED - CABERNET SAUVIGNON

WA96Size750MLVintage2013SKU23064

The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Dancing Bear Ranch has a dense purple color, wonderfully sweet cassis fruit and blackberries, with a touch of mulberry, forest floor and underbrush. Full-bodied, rich, concentrated and super-pure, this beauty is young, but accessible, yet I don't see it hitting its prime for another 7-8 years. 96pts WA

Francesco Rinaldi Barolo Cannubbio

ITALY: PIEDMONT - BAROLO

Size1.5LVintage2006SKU18085

The 2006 Barolo Cannubbio is fabulous. Roses, sweet spices, dark cherries, minerals and licorice are some of the notes that emerge from this deceptively medium-bodied Barolo. Rinaldi's Cannubbio captures the floral qualities of Nebbiolo but with surprising muscle to back things up. 94pts Wine Advocate (2006)

Once again in 2010, notes of mocha, espresso roast, chocolate, creme de cassis and scorched earth soar from this opaque purple-colored wine. It is aged in 100% new oak, but that is hardly noticeable given the wines sensational richness and extravagant fruit.

This is more elegant and refined still with an expressive nose that runs more toward floral and white fruit aromas whereas the slightly bigger and richer flavors give up none of the detail or minerality of the En Remilly. This is a bit more forward than it usually is but it's most impressive all the same. Outstanding! Allen Meadows-Burghound

A completely different aromatic profile is presented as here the nose is much more earth dominated with a mix of red, black and violet notes that sit atop rich, full and notably serious medium full flavors that offer excellent volume and here too a bit of wood surfaces on the youthfully austere finish. The mouth feel is quite firm yet the tannins are relatively fine. Excellent quality. Allen Meadows - Burghound

This is very primary and awkward yet the quality of the raw material is clear and this should reward 10 to 15 years of cellar time.allen meadows-Burghound
