Match Book Tinto Rey Dunnigan Cabernet Sauvignon 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Tinto Rey means Red King. Tempranillo is the king of Spanish red wines and one of the most important varietals in our Matchbook Vineyard in the Dunnigan Hills. The Spanish varietals Tempranillo and Graciano contribute spicy red berry fruit flavors; Syrah adds rich flavors of black cherry and blueberry; the spicy cedar and tobacco notes are from the cool weather Cabernet Sauvignon; a touch of Petite Sirah pumps up the tannins, the rich color, and adds a little pepper spice. Tinto Rey is always the best blend of the best wines in our cellar so changes slightly from year to year. For this vintage we added 13% Chalk Hill Cabernet Sauvignon to our Dunnigan Hills Tempranillo, Syrah and Graciano. This is a rich, bold, complex wine with loads of spice and fruit. 2% Petite Sirah adds tannin to the structure and little white pepper to the finish. This just calls for a grilled steak about now. 44% Tempranillo, 36% Syrah, 13% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Graciano, 2% Petite Sirah.
