Winemaker Notes

#6 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2011

With aromas of ripe black cherry and red berries, vanilla, wood smoke, roasted herbs and sweet oak, the concentrated flavors of this supple blend offer a lengthy finish. The 2008 blend amps up the Merlot, but remains distinctively "Ursa" with hints of violet, and spicy black pepper derived from Cabernet Franc.

A well-rounded crowd pleaser, Ursa continues to deliver a lush, but complex fruit-forward blend that pairs well with food or sips well on its own.

53% Merlot, 29% Cabernet Franc, 13% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Malbec, 1% Petit Verdot

Critical Acclaim

WS 95
Wine Spectator
This has great presence, offering a dense cloud of blackberry, cherry and spice flavors that hover, almost weightless, over a sleek frame of fine tannins, with just enough acidity to keep it fresh. The finish sails on beautifully. Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec and Petit Verdot. Best from 2012 through 2020. 1,095 cases made.

Wine Enthusiast
Merlot and Cab Franc are the stars of this five-grape Bordeaux-style blend. It begins sweetly, with a pretty mix of ripe berries, spicy toast and dark chocolate. The flavors spread across the palate, adding hints of black pepper and sandalwood. Lush, deep, and slightly exotic, this is a real palate-pleaser.

Baer, Columbia Valley, Washington
Winemaker Lance Baer founded Baer Winery in 2000 with a single passion—to bring something unique to Woodinville. After years of working with some of the most prestigious wineries in the area, Lance wanted to take his winemaking skills in his own, creative, direction. Lance succeeded in handcrafting blends distinctly his own, and in April 2003 the winery’s signature blend, Ursa, was released. Ursa, a feminine expression of red wine, predominantly Merlot and Cabernet Franc, was soon followed by Arctos, a bolder Cabernet Sauvignon-based blend.
