Winemaker Notes

The 2014 McNab showcases the intense character Biodynamic grapes can bring to a great wine. For this vintage, we created a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot with Old Vine Petite Sirah. Each varietal is allowed to ripen individually to peak maturity before harvesting, expressing the vintage, and the character of each varietal unique terroir of the McNab Ranch.

The resulting wine has aromas of blackberries, black currants with touches of cedar. Soft tannins and a long finish reveal flavors of raspberry, plum, vanilla spice and well-integrated oak.

Blend: 57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 9% Petite Sirah, 2% Cabernet Franc, 2% Malbec

COMMENTARY: What on earth can Biodynamic® Grapes and classic Bordeaux varieties have in common in the genre of world-class wines. The 2014 Bonterra "The McNab Single Vintage Cuvée has made this union a reality. This is a very fine effort and gives us more reason to respect these techniques as the Biodynamic® continues to grow. TASTING NOTES: This wine is a complete and beautiful wine. Its aromas and flavors of red and black fruits, classic pencil lead, and oak accents make it perfect choice with a juicy grilled ribeye. (Tasted: October 25, 2018, San Francisco, CA)

Organically farmed and masterfully crafted, Bonterra Organic Vineyards epitomizes wines that are perfectly in tune with nature. A celebration of farm-fresh flavors, the portfolio features wines coaxed from the earth by careful farming practices carried out on a dynamic network of estate and partner farms throughout California. In addition to a widely available collection of organically farmed wines that includes Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Equinox Red and Rosé, Bonterra crafts a trio of sought-after single-vineyard offerings from estate Biodynamic® vineyards in Mendocino County, and The Elysian Collection Merlot, an elevated offering from organic grapes.

Long before organic produce filled the shelves of neighborhood groceries, the dedicated team at Bonterra was committed to organic and Biodynamic® farming because they passionately believe that farms teeming with biodiversity—encompassing vines, insects and wildlife, and healthy soils—yield organic grapes leading to better wines. Whether supporting the health of honeybees with hive housing in its organic vineyards, trading tractors for sheep to maintain vineyards during the winter months, or giving back to the future of agriculture through educational outreach and shared knowledge, Bonterra strives to leave behind a legacy of thoughtful winegrowing inspired by the potential of nature itself.

A large and diverse appellation within California’s North Coast AVA, Mendocino is home to several smaller sub-regions—most notably the Anderson Valley. This scenic region, with rolling hills covered in redwood forests as well as vineyards, is one of the world’s top producers of certified organically-grown grapes. Due to wide geographical and climatic variation, a vast array of wine styles can be found here.

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World, experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a fruity and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is naturally high in acidity and tannins. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
