Bear Cave Cellars Description

Bear Cave Cellars is the creation of Barry Kinman and Marilyn Curry who, in their other lives, are husband and wife as well as partners in the law firm, Kinman & Curry.
In a unique melding of two distinctly different businesses, the law office is also the legal tasting room of Bear Cave Cellars. Whether you want legal advice or to try our wines, call our offices.
Barry has been making wine since 1991. While living in Sonoma county he had access to top quality fruit from winery clients of the law office, including Kunde Vineyards. In the early 1990's getting top quality fruit in Napa and Sonoma was not as difficult as it is today. Focusing on Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel, Barry had the opportunity to work with top quality fruit in what may be the greatest decade of California grape growing - the 1990's. Barry produced excellent wines from Napa in 1994, Sonoma in 1997 and the Sierra foothills in 2000.
Paso Robles produces ultra-ripe wine grapes, which lend themselves to the fruit-forward style of wine making. By using a cool fermentation with extended time on the skins our wines all provide a softness and full mouth feel. The winery produces Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Syrah and Zinfandel.

Really nice experience
ansmom, San Diego
Wonderful, I ended up buying a case, my favorite was the 2005 Syrah, they only have reds. The server was an owner and she was friendly, helpful, chatty, and recommended other tasting rooms to visit that I may (and did) like. Pleasant uncluttered room, I am short and I like the serving bar wasn't up to my neck like a few other places I've been. Only regret is I only bought case of a mix of Syrah, cab, and merlot.

Great experience. The people here are very smart and I was able to talk to them about anything from vacationing to politics to wine. The best wine I tasted here was the Cabernet Franc.
