Forever enduring. Vint. Forever relentless. Forever independent. Self preservation. Truth. Freedom. June 14 1846.

May we relentlessly continue to be guided by the principle of self-preservation: by the love of truth; and by the hatred of tyranny. California Republic Proclamation.

Structured and full-bodied, Bear Flag has a spicy zinfandel character complemented by dark fruit notes reminiscent of blueberry pie with hints of vanilla and toast. Alc. 15.3% by vol.
