Bear Flag Eureka Batch No 1 Red
Robert Parker, Jr's Wine Advocate: "The NV Eureka! Red Blend is made up of 57% Zinfandel, 12% Petite Sirah, 11% Syrah, 9% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Sangiovese and a small portion of other varieties, aged in both French and American oak. Deep garnet-purple colored, black raspberries, kirsch and wild blueberries notes come bounding out of the glass with nuances of pencil lead, spice box and dried Provence herbs plus a waft of camphor. Medium to full-bodied, the palate delivers loads of spicy black and red fruit preserves flavors, finishing long and savory." Jan 2019
Winery: "Even for the independent, the time comes to join forces in pursuit of a better state. Eager for long-awaited statehood, 48 settlers from varied backgrounds crafted the California Constitution in 1849. We in turn united the best grapes for our new red blend, named in honor of the state motto.
Blending the best bold California reds, Bear Flag Eureka! Red Blend delivers notes of ripe plum and boysenberry jam one moment and hints of graham crackers and milk chocolate the next. Abundant hints of complex spices and a tease of candied orange zest lend a hand in putting this plush red blend in a category of its own."
