Solid dark ruby-red in appearance, the 2013 Bear Crossing has completely integrated notes of blackberry jam, wild sage and is profoundly concentrated. Very broad on the palate, the finish is dense, chewy and due to the sheer mass of extract. This may prove to be one of the longest-lived wines from Knights Valley in 2013. This vintage was sourced from a rocky hillside vineyard perched above the fogline in Knights Valley. There the terroir is conducive to making inky, concentrated wines of great distinction. That is the essence of Delectus.

I tasted three Cabernet Sauvignons from Delectus Winery. The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Bear Crossing (305 cases) has notes of saddle leather, rich, super-concentrated blackberry fruit, striking density, richness, and a connoisseur's backwardness and profound richness that will require some time to come around. The tannins are excruciatingly high, and this wine reminds me of some of the late 1960s and early 1970s vintages of famous Mayacamas from Mount Veeder when it was almost like Port in its extraction and richness. This wine needs a good 10 years and seems to have a high ceiling.
