Bear Hug Winemaker Select California Chardonnay

A fabulous Chardonnay. So refreshing and delightful. Sweet n crisp. You can taste the green apples but they give it a nice bite to balance the sweet of the honeysuckle n melon. Just lovely and easy to drink. No dryness or heavy tannis. Does contain sulfites. — 25 days ago

Vieilles Vignes Maucaillou Bordeaux Supérieur Merlot Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

I enjoyed this one on a hammock in an apple orchard in Auvergne so that may bias my rating... A nice backbone with fruit to bear. I thought it was quite good. — 3 days ago

The Bear Premier Series Okanagan Valley Red Blend 2015

And here we have it... our new favourite BC red. The colour is dark Burgundy, almost black. The aroma fills the nose with dark freshly ripe fruits and hints of black liquorice. On the palate, first notes are composed of freshly ripe dark plums, blackcurrant, with flavours of dark raisin and cassis. The dark fruity notes are followed by hints of vanilla, and mild mulled cooking spices and anise. It’s a big and bold dark fruit wine that is elegantly integrated with silky, royal tannins. Every sip makes you pause and appreciate its strength. If you find this you must buy it, or come to Oliver BC. — a month ago

@Michael B Bought two bottles of this spectacular wine yesterday. Bill Eggert and his Fairview Cellars is hands down the best maker of wine in the Okanagan. The Bear is spectacular. I also bought his Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Crooked Post Pinot. Cheers 🍷🇨🇦

@Shawn Thompson totally agree with you. Whole range of reds are amazing!


Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Rim to rim inky. Wild blackberry, cassis and black currant resonates with graphite accents. After 7 days open this shows as Christmas pudding, incorporating cedar, tobacco and antiqued parchment into the clove, nutmeg and plummy-date-y-fig-ness. There is also an interesting chopped cordwood. With a mouthful of super chewy tannins and teeth-staining extraction make this little monster a mouth wrestler, but after days, it submits and never really quits with generous rosemary, thyme and eucalyptus. Graphite goodness shades the currant, and the blackberry is dried, concentrated magic. New world nose, but Old World depth while remaining thoroughly Californian. I would have left this mag alone for 10 years, but free is free. The personification of a black bear. — 13 days ago

From Bainbridge Island, bear Seattle. Sweet, clean notes are an interesting contrast with traditional Bourbon. Nice alternative to have once and a while. — 5 days ago

Château La Canorgue

Côtes du Luberon Red Blend 2016

Tastes like a fine Bandol red at $16.00. What more could one desire? All the garrigue, dark bitterness, and structure you want in a Provençal red. More Kaa the snake than a Rhône Baloo the bear, pick up a few of these to set aside. Fabulous. — 10 days ago
