Notes on the Matchbook Cabernet Sauvignon 750ML 2011

Tasting Notes Presents aromas of black cherries and raspberries with notes of leather, black olives and game. Flavors of berry cobbler mix with coffee and toasty spice. Rich and complex with medium tannins on the elegant finish.

Technical Notes (75% Cabernet Sauvignon/16% Cabernet Franc/5% Merlot/2% Syrah/2% Tempranillo). The grapes were gently crushed and fermented in small temperature controlled stainless steel tanks, pumped over twice a day and pressed at dryness. The wine was aged for 14 months in French and American oak (22% new).

Additional Notes WHY MATCHBOOK?As a farm kid growing up in the late 1950´s and early 1960´s John Giguiere was a confirmed pyromaniac starting various things on fire such as his father´s wheat field. At one point, fearing total ruin from his kids burning him out of the house and farm, his father took them to the city jail for an hour stay to impress upon his brother and him the futility of their fascination with fire. John and his brother answered at a later date by graduating from random fires to the launching of rockets which often blew up at some stage of the its journey resulting in more random fires and a call to the local fire department for help. They eventually grew out of this fascination with the “Matchbook” but still have fond memories of the power they possessed.About the AppellationMatchbook has seven products, all focusing on varietals that perform well in the warm Dunnigan Hills climate. We blend a percentage of coastal fruit to the Dunnigan Hills wines to add structure and intensify flavors.
