Winemaker's Notes:

Varietal Content: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot

Blackberry aromas and a bouquet of toasted oak, roasted hazelnuts, black pepper and cigar smoke with a hint of bay leaf foreshadow flavors of ripe berry jam, dried brush, vanilla and sweet oak.

Serve with spicy seafood pasta, barbecued pork or mushroom risotto.

My Notes:

About Cinnabar Vineyards:

Situated 40 miles south of San Francisco between the Pacific Ocean and San Francisco Bay, Cinnabar overlooks Silicon Valley from the east rim of the Santa Cruz Mountains at 1,650 feet. Mild temperatures and clay-loam soils contribute deep fruit and earthy components to wines that express a unique sense of place. Winemaker George Troquato combines Cinnabar's small, intensely flavored grapes with meddle-free winemaking to produce complex, well-balanced wines.
