Wine Grapes

Primary Grape: Cabernet Sauvignon | All Grapes: 95% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc, 1% Petite Sirah

From the Producer

Solid dark ruby-red in appearance, the 2013 Bear Crossing has completely integrated notes of blackberry jam, wild sage and is profoundly concentrated. Very broad on the palate, the finish is dense, chewy and due to the sheer mass of extract. This may prove to be one of the longest-lived wines from Knights Valley in 2013.

Critical Acclaim

RP94+ Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 3rd Mar 2016

"I tasted three Cabernet Sauvignons from Delectus Winery. The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Bear Crossing (305 cases) has notes of saddle leather, rich, super-concentrated blackberry fruit, striking density, richness, and a connoisseur’s backwardness and profound richness that will require some time to come around. The tannins are excruciatingly high, and this wine reminds me of some of the late 1960s and early 1970s vintages of famous Mayacamas from Mount Veeder when it was almost like Port in its extraction and richness. This wine needs a good 10 years and seems to have a high ceiling." (94+ pts.)

California

When it comes to US wine production, California is King. California wines account for almost 90% of all wines produced in the United States each year, and is home to the most celebrated vineyards and producers in the country. California is probably best known for its world-famous Cabernets and Chardonnays, many of which hail from its two most-acclaimed AVAs, Napa Valley and Sonoma County. Other prominent grapes used in California wines include Merlot, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, and Zinfandel (which California made popular).

United States

The United States now ranks fourth in the world in wine production behind, France, Italy, and Spain. While about 90% of that wine is produced in California, other states like Oregon, New York, and Washington are establishing themselves as prime spots for wine production, as well. Just about any variety of wine can be found in production somewhere in the United States.
