Winemaker's Notes

Syrah continues in this vintage as Bonterra's unconventional blending grape for Cabernet Sauvignon, giving intriguing elements of spice and deep rich flavors sometimes not so attainable from the more traditional Merlot or Petite Sirah. Over the past seven years Bonterra has been privileged to work with Christian LeSommer, formerly of Chateau LaTour, to refine away the rough edges of their Cabernet to allow an elegant, near Old World styled wine to emerge.

This Cabernet offers New World aromas of Bing cherry, currants and raspberry, with spicy notes of cedar and dried cranberry, with slight vanilla notes (French Vanilla, of course). 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.

This rich and flavorful wine will be a surprisingly good match with a broad array of dishes that reach far beyond Cabernet's traditional pairing with roast meats.
