The 2018 Matchbook Estate Bottled Cabernet Sauvignon is crafted from grapes grown entirely in our Dunnigan Hills vineyards. The mouth-coating flavors of blackberry, black cherry, clove and star anise linger in the long finish.
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 12 months. The best barrel lots were chosen for this complex blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Petit Verdot and 2% Malbec to create a boldly flavored Dunnigan Hills Cabernet Sauvignon.
Pair with big flavors of a slow roasted prime rib, a hearty beef stew or a sizzling New York strip steak.
