2007 Cakebread Dancing Bear Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon

2007 Cakebread Dancing Bear Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon

I had the pleasure to sampling this wine at a recent tasting and much like the other Cabernet Sauvignon is Cakebread’s repertoire, I thought it was outstanding.

In the glass, this Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon is dark and onctuous.  Just beautiful.  The nose on the 2007 Cakebread Dancing Bear Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon is intense with mashed ripe cherries and dark raspberries.  There are notes of pumpkin pie spices and mocha.  On the palate, it’s bold yet smooth.  There’s dark chocolate, pine needles, juicy stone fruits and loads of ripe fruit.  A complex, rich, opulent wine with rounded tannins that last through a long finish.
