    Winemaker's Notes:

    Subtle changes in this vintage will be noticeable to friends of Bonterra. We've tightened our vineyard focus, moving from a North Coast to a Mendocino appellation. And we've continued to use and increase Syrah as our unconventional blending grape, giving intriguing elements of spice and deep rich flavors sometimes not so attainable from the more traditional Merlot. Over the past six years we've been privileged to work with Christian LeSommer, formerly of Chateau LaTour, to chisel our Cabernet and refine away the rough edges to allow an elegant, Old World styled Cabernet to emerge. While definitely influenced by the insights Christian brings from Bordeaux, this Cabernet offers New World aromas of cherry and raspberry, with spicy notes of nutmeg and creamy vanilla (French Vanilla, of course). The wine enters with juicy red berry flavors, and offers a soft, yet full and rich mouthfeel with a wonderful finish worthy of an exhibitionist. You'll find velvety chocolate in this finish, a rich contrast to dark fruit, such as plum. Call me traditional, but a bone-in Sirloin topped with Blue Cheese butter and a glass of Bonterra Cabernet Sauvignon would make my day.

    - Bob Blue, Winemaker
