BAER Red Wine 'Arctos' 2013

The 2013 'Arctos' by Baer is a gorgeous new release wine that is a blend of 84% Cabernet with 8% Cabernet Franc and 8% Petit Verdot. Showing some restraint now, this Cabernet more than two hours in the decanter to unwind. This wine opens with aromatics of anise, sagebrush, dill and black olive. There are flavors of black cherry, black olive, wild blackberry preserves and tar in this very black fruit filled amalgamation. There is a gorgeous and polished texture to this wine and an almost Bordelaise feel that is striking considering the heat of the vintage. This wine is a joy to savor right now as this is beautifully done by head winemaker Erica Orr.(Best 2016-2029) - May, 2016 (OB)
