Color phase question

There was a cinnamon color bear taken in the mid 90s from where I am going to tomorrow. It was a small boar. The sow I saw last year was brown and black. It was all brown with a blacvk stripe on the back. Is the color phase of a bear genetic or it doesn't really matter what color mom and dad bear were?
