2016 Baer Winery "Ursa" Columbia Valley 750ml

2016 Baer Winery "Ursa" Columbia Valley

image may not be actual bottle available

The 2016 Ursa is equal parts Merlot and Franc with Cabernet Sauvignon and a touch of Malbec, all from Stillwater Creek vineyard. This wine was raised in 42% new French oak barrels - mainly Sylvain, Demptos and Atelier coopers- for 21 months. We bottled this blend in July of 2018 and have been aging it in bottle for another 20 months. I'm really pleased with how this wine has come together with harmony and seamlessness. The fruit character is ripe red stone fruit, plums and cherries but there is a savoriness like roasted red bell peppers, smoky off the grill and something cooling and herbal that reminds me of bay leaf or fennel. The 2016 reds are not as bold and opulent as the 2015 vintage. This vintage of Ursa is a little more subtle, more understated than last vintage but with a kind of refinement that I think is a hallmark of the Baer style. - Winemaker's Notes

Country: United States
Although wine is made in all 50 states, it is understandable, with almost 90% of the country's production, that California is synonymous with domestic wine. As of 2010 harvest, reports indicate that Washington, New York & Oregon account for additional 6% of production, meanwhile Virginia, Missouri and Texas's wine industries are growing to a point beyond that of just a tourist attraction.

Region: Washington

Sub-Region: Columbia Valley

Type: Red
Red wine is wine made from dark-coloured grape varieties. The color of red differs based on the grapes variety or varieties used. Interestingly, black grapes yield a juice that is greenish-white. The actual red color comes from anthocyan pigments (also called anthocyanins) from the skin of the grape (exceptions are the relatively uncommon teinturier varieties, which produce a red colored juice). Most of the production centers around the extraction of color and flavor from the grape skin.
