    Winemaker Notes

    Tinto Rey is Spanish for "Red King", and Tempranillo is the king of Spanish red wines. It's also the most important varietal in our Matchbook Vineyard. That's why tempranillo is the foundation in our unique Mediterranean blend. Rich aromas of blueberry, red fruit and rustic leather stand out as flavors of boysenberry and red currant lead to hints of chocolate truffle and plum. The Tinto Rey is medium-bodied and seamless, with soft-grain tannins and just an edge of zesty tartness weaved in with the sweetness of the fruit.

    Try pairing with a rare rack of lamb, spicy Spanish sausage or wood-fired pepperoni and bell pepper pizza.

    Blend: 50% Tempranillo, 27% Syrah, 11% Petit Verdot, 8% Graciano, 4% Tannat

    East of Napa, Left of Center: The Giguiere family embodies Dunnigan Hills winemaking. In 1981 they pioneered grape growing in this region when they planted their first vineyard. By 1993, they had succeeded in creating the Dunnigan Hills as a nationally recognized American appellation. The Matchbook flame is an homage to the Giguiere brothers’ youthful fascination with fire. Today, Matchbook Wine Company produces wines showcasing the varietals that perform best in their Northern California climate.

    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.
