You've just found your everyday Cabernet! Estate Bottled. Rich, juicy mouth-filling flavors. And a bargain at $15. This delicious Dunnigan Hills Cabernet is an easy choice for mid-week pasta and a sure crowd pleaser with the monthly gourmet group.
The 2018 Matchbook Estate Bottled Cabernet Sauvignon is crafted from grapes grown entirely in our Dunnigan Hills vineyards. Enticing dusty cherry-tobacco aromas lead to brambly blackberry and mocha flavors layered with chocolate and dried cranberry. The mouth-filling flavors linger in the finish with soft, but firm tannins.
The estate grown grapes were gently crushed and fermented in small temperature-controlled stainless-steel tanks. We used a combination of specially selected yeast to enhance color and flavor extraction without harsh tannins. We pumped the tanks over twice a day until nearly dry, then pressed and aged the wine in a combination of French, Hungarian and American oak barrels for 14 months. The best barrel lots were chosen for this complex blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 21% Petit Verdot and 4% Malbec to create a boldly flavored Dunnigan Hills Cabernet Sauvignon.
Pair with a sizzling New York strip steak, meat lover's pizza or roast beef.
