Baer 2009 Ursa Red (Columbia Valley (WA))
A lighter Ursa than recent vintages, the 2009 is a young purple-violet color, with grapy aromas and a broad, fruity palate. Hints of roasted nuts express barrel aging, and the wine has good grip, though the fruit flavors at this stage are still primary. Give this one some further bottle age to smooth out. Paul Gregutt

All tastings reported in the Buying Guide are performed blind. Typically, products are tasted in peer-group flights of from 5-8 samples. Reviewers may know general information about a flight to provide context—vintage, variety or appellation—but never the producer or retail price of any given selection. When possible, products considered flawed or uncustomary are retasted.
