Very green but not underripe. you can almost taste the "organic-ness" of the grapes as there is absolutely no chemical taste to this. Although it says that it contains Sulfites, I would swear this was a barrell tasting with no sulfites.

Peppery with sweet notes and a tingling subtleness on the nose. I was totally expecting that bite of spice but instead the initial sip is not really much of anything. I was a little disappointed. I gave it a little moment. Unlike other things in my life where I am very judgmental, I like to give wines a second chance. My second sip had a mild surprise of earthy blackcurrant undertones with a spicy dark chocolate and definitely more of what I was expecting given the bouquet. The nice surprise of this wine is the many layers it seems to have from chocolate to vanilla to dark fruits and spiciness. This Cab finishes with a sharp dryness that sucks your cheeks in a little. In fact, on more tastes I really got into the dryness of this wine and I really liked it.

Bonterra Cabernet offers aromas of bright cherry, currant, and raspberry with notes of toasted oak and vanilla. In the glass, you will find flavors of cherry and currant and a lingering and thoughtful finish. Good structure, a moderate weight, polished tannins and a balanced acidity promise an ever more pleasing wine to come. This is a Cabernet Sauvignon which will continue to evolve and remain enjoyable for quite some time to come.

Zinfandel is inextricably tied to Mendocino and stands as a tribute to the rugged Italians who settled this county and the remarkably rustic wines they created. Our Zinfandel is a little more elegant and balanced than those wines, but undeniably Mendocino.

Bonterra Zinfandel 750ml Bonterra Zinfandel has aromas of red raspberry and brambly fruit with hints of mountain blueberry and a touch of white pepper and cedar spice. As you enjoy the wine, you'll find dependable ZInfandel flavors of rich plum, blackberry compote, black pepper and a sweet mouthfeel with mature, easy-going tannings.

Cabernet Sauvignon is known for creating wines of amazing density and complexity with both concentrated and nuanced flavors. In making Bonterra Cabernet Sauvignon, I like to add to these layers of avor by blending in small amounts of other red varietals to add color, texture, and a bit of spice. Varieties and vineyard lots are kept separate until the best lots are blended together to create the final wine.
