Review: *** $ Bear Hug Barrel Select Cabernet Sauvignon, California, 2013

Check out today's pricing and retail availability for Bear Hug Barrel Select Cabernet Sauvignon.

Original tasting and review : This is Bear Hug Barrel Select Cabernet Sauvignon, California, 2013, finished at 13.2% alcohol and first sampled 2 years from vintage date, in August, 2015.


In the glass: Deep magenta.

On the nose: Poured at room temperature and swirled vigorously, shows bright cherry with some oak.  From the aroma, seems like this will be fairly generic but easy going.

On the palate: The primary elements on the palate are in fact mouth-filling, aromatic with violets, red cherry and soft blackberries.  Soft oak surround.  Finish builds and fades quickly, bringing a nice clean wash of fruit.  Light tannins and acids.

In summary: Overall, rates an easy three stars on the five-star Spirit of Wine scale.
