This is a big, gorgeous wine, showing both elegance and power. Cardboard notes open on the nose followed by a generous array of fruity scents. On the palate, cassis is abundant up front. Strong structured tannins create a velvety mouthfeel, which is soon filled with crisply-dealt red and dark fruits. Chocolate and tobacco provide a subtle background, and a wonderful, peppery, spicy finish commands attention for a full 60 seconds.

The wine is rich, deep and juicy with mouthfilling dark cherry, boysenberry, cassis, plum and cedar flavors that take on a pronounced brambly spice tone in the remarkably long, savory finish.

Wonderfully complex aromas of black plum, crushed boysenberry, ripe olallieberry, fig, earth, baking spices and chocolate. On the dense, weighty palate, the wine delivers intense, mouthfilling, blackberry, black cherry, boysenberry and forest-floor spice flavors supported by supple, chewy tannins and a long, mouth-coating finish

Winemaker's Tasting Notes - Our 2007 Dancing Bear displays the intriguing dance of intensity and elegance that has become this mountain wine s trademark. High-toned aromas of freshly crushed boysenberries, dark cherries and forest-floor spice (imagine walking in a pine forest after a light summer rainfall) introduce a big, dense, tightly wound palate packed with marvelously rich and concentrated black cherry, boysenberry and blackberry flavors, which are enhanced by savory clove, cocoa and vanilla tones. Beautifully structured and with great reserves of intense fruit supported by round, beautifully integrated tannins, this dramatic mountain red will delight wine lovers now and over the next decade.

The dense purple-colored 2007 Dancing Bear Ranch Proprietary Red (80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot and 7% Cabernet Franc) reveals more chocolate fudge and coffee notes. It does not have the nuances or complexity of the Benchland Select or the sheer joy of the Napa Cabernet Sauvignon, but there is a lot going on in this cuvée. Slightly monolithic, it is well-endowed, rich and full, so my rating may be slightly conservative.
