Winemaker's Notes:

84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Syrah, 5% Petite Sirah, 2% Merlot

This Cabernet offers New World aromas of cherry and raspberry, with spicy notes of nutmeg and coffee oak, with slight vanilla. The wine enters with juicy red berry flavors, and offers a very approachable, rich and full mouthfeel with a wonderful finish. Good structure, polished tannins that promise an ever more complex wine to come, with lively acidity and subtle spice.

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
