Winemaker's Notes:

Bonterra's Cabernet traditionally offers aromas of Bing cherry, casis, currants and raspberry, with spicy notes of cedar and dried cranberry, with slight vanilla notes In the glass you'll find juicy red berry flavors, and a very approachable, rich and full mouthfeel with a lingering, thoughtful finish. Good structure, polished yet soft tannins promise an ever more pleasing wine to come, with lively acidity and subtle spice.

Crafted from certified organically grown grapes from Mendocino and Lake Counties.
