#28 Baer Ursa Columbia Valley 2012
Wine Spectator Top 100 | 2015 | 94 points
Ursa has done it again. From a pool of more than 18,000 wines, the editors of Wine Spectator have named the 2012 Ursa as the #28 wine in the world. The winning wines were selected in independent blind tastings based on 4 criteria: quality (represented by score), value (reflected by release price), availability (based on the number of cases made) and what Wine Spectator calls the “X”-factor—or, in other words, the excitement generated by the wine.
#6 Baer Ursa Columbia Valley 2008
Wine Spectator Top 100 | 2011 | 95 points
Winemaker Lance Baer founded Baer Winery in 2000, producing his wines in Woodinville, Wash., using grapes from Columbia Valley vineyards. After his death in 2007, his sister Lisa and his father, Les, took the reins and hired consulting winemaker Erica Orr. Baer’s signature wine, Ursa, Latin for “bear,” has always been impressive for its suppleness and pure flavors. The 2008, a blend that focuses on Merlot and Cabernet Franc, is the winery’s best wine yet.
Come meet us and taste Baer wines at these upcoming wine events . . .
