Day #[wpdts-day-of-year start=”post-created”] of the year.

Cakebread Cellars Dancing Bear Ranch

Merry Christmas and happy holidays! Cakebread Dancing Bear is an extraordinary blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Merlot from Howell Mountain in Napa Valley. It conveys the perfect amount of jolly good cheer (because who wouldn’t crack a grin at the image of a burly bear doing a jig in the vineyards?) and seriously excellent wine that does a fine job of celebrating the day. I hope your holiday season is merry and bright, and you have a special bottle like Dancing Bear to savor!


Napa Valley, California


89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc, 1% Merlot

Tasting Notes

Aromas of boysenberry, black cherry, and fig with accents of forest floor are highlighted in the 2017 vintage. On the palate, intense, concentrated flavors of blackberry, black cherry and boysenberry are balanced by traces of minerality and opulent tannins with a dense, powerful black fruit finish. Beautifully balanced and structured this intense, complex mountain wine will continue to unfold in the bottle for the next decade.
