    Winemaker's Notes:

    #6 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2011

    With aromas of ripe black cherry and red berries, vanilla, wood smoke, roasted herbs and sweet oak, the concentrated flavors of this supple blend offer a lengthy finish. The 2008 blend amps up the Merlot, but remains distinctively "Ursa" with hints of violet, and spicy black pepper derived from Cabernet Franc.

    A well-rounded crowd pleaser, Ursa continues to deliver a lush, but complex fruit-forward blend that pairs well with food or sips well on its own.

    53% Merlot, 29% Cabernet Franc, 13% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Malbec, 1% Petit Verdot

    Critical Acclaim:

    This has great presence, offering a dense cloud of blackberry, cherry and spice flavors that hover, almost weightless, over a sleek frame of fine tannins, with just enough acidity to keep it fresh. The finish sails on beautifully. Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec and Petit Verdot. Best from 2012 through 2020. 1,095 cases made.

    Merlot and Cab Franc are the stars of this five-grape Bordeaux-style blend. It begins sweetly, with a pretty mix of ripe berries, spicy toast and dark chocolate. The flavors spread across the palate, adding hints of black pepper and sandalwood. Lush, deep, and slightly exotic, this is a real palate-pleaser.

    Good full, deep red. Cassis, bitter chocolate, sexy oak and an inky quality on the primary nose, with complicating notes of tomato leaf and tobacco. Lush, sweet and concentrated. This spicy, rather suave big boy finishes supple, broad and long, with substantial dusty tannins.
