The McNab Biodynamic Red 2019, Bonterra


SKU: 34945670049 Categories: ,

This biodynamic, single-vineyard wine is Cabernet Sauvignon dominated, with a smaller proportion of Petite Sirah adding exciting spice notes: reflecting the role of Petit Verdot in the great wines of Bordeaux. It has a brilliant, deep red hue and opens with an appealing chorus of black currant, fig and dark chocolate aromas. Firm though fine tannins frame a generous mid-palate that leads to flavors of cassis, toast, portobello and subtle minerality. Suggestions of tobacco and anise harmonize on the lingering finish. Among the first biodynamic vineyards planted in the United States, McNab Ranch is the agricultural heart of Bonterra Organic Vineyards. “McNab Ranch is Bonterra’s home, so it’s important to us that this wine is the best representation of the high standards we have for quality. It’s impossible not to be impressed by the natural beauty of this ranch, so we try to make a wine to honor this.” — Jeff Cichocki, Winemaker
