"This full-bodied and moderately tannic wine is well-packed with ripe blackberries and blueberries on a velvety, mouthcoating texture. Good concentration and ripeness bring a warm, rich impression to the palate."

The 2019 Matchbook Estate Bottled Cabernet Sauvignon is crafted from grapes grown entirely in their Dunnigan Hills vineyards. The wine opens with the beautiful varietal aromas of mocha, leather and toasty oak. Plush flavors of blackberry, vanilla, deep red fruit and olive tapenade are rich and mouth-coating. The dense flavors surround the tannins for a finish that is well-structured and smooth.

This is a substantial Cabernet that will pair well with the big flavors of a slow roasted prime rib, a hearty beef stew or a sizzling New York strip steak.
Blend: 79 Cabernet Sauvignon, 13 Malbec, 8 Petit Verdot

MatchbookAs farm kids growing up in the late 1950's and early 1960's, the Giguiere brothers were veritable pyromaniacs, setting numerous things on fire--including the family wheat fields. Fearing total ruin of house and farm, the boys' father one day left them at the city jail for an hour's "stay" to impress upon them the dangers of their fascination with fire. But it was to no avail. They soon graduated to launching rockets, which resulted in more uncontrolled blazes and calls to the fire department. Over time, the Giguiere boys outgrew their fascination with the flame. But even today they look at the Matchbook brand with fond memories of the fires they once stoked. Dunnigan Hills is often overlooked in conversations about Wine Country. But a lot of wineries from other appellations purchase fruit – a lot of fruit – from our vineyards. Those who have never visited, lump us into the Central Valley. Winery insiders know these hills are a hidden gem. The soils are full of red gravel; the nights are cool and breezy; the growing season is long as is the horizon. This region checks every box for premium wine grapes, but we are never satisfied with just checking boxes. We are propelled by innovation. Experimental trellis techniques and irrigation methods, new clones, cover crops and tilling. There is nothing we won't try in our life's mission to improve the quality of our appellation. Dunnigan Hills is worth looking over.
