Winemaker's Notes:

You'll find a rich color and layers of traditional Cabernet flavors such as blackberry, chocolate and cola, with touches of violet and cassis. On the nose pleasant aromas of ripe cherry and cola spice are accentuated with black currants. The wine is juicy and full in the mouth with hints of coffee, toasty oak and dark fruits like plums. It remains a Cabernet that complements food instead of overpowering it. A Blue cheese melted across a bone-in New York Steak would be a great pairing choice.

About Bonterra:

Bonterra wines are a natural expression of the unique climate and soil of the Mendocino coast. The name "Bonterra" means good earth. All of their wines are nurtured from organically grown grapes. Bonterra relishes the re-discovery of age-old traditions of viticulture, working in harmony with Nature, to create wines with pure, concentrated flavors.

THE BONTERRA PHILOSOPHY
We honor the land by farming organically, creating rich soils that provide healthy vines the opportunity to deliver wonderfully flavorful fruit. With every sip of Bonterra wine, you can taste our natural commitment. There's no other way to fully capture the expression of our Mendocino terroir.
David Koball, Vineyard Manager
