Biodynamic, McNab Ranch Vineyard ‘The McNab’ 2016 750ml
McNab Ranch Vineyard Mendocino County, California 97% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Petite Sirah
About the Producer: One of the original Biodynamic® vineyards planted in the United States, McNab Ranch is the agricultural heart of Bonterra Organic Vineyards. A century after its beginnings as a sheep ranch, the protected site nestled in a box canyon was transformed into a world-class winegrowing estate, renowned for its elegant integration of grapevines into the surrounding natural habitat’s rhythms and wildlife.
Winery Tasting Notes: This Bordeaux-style blend is centered on Cabernet Sauvignon with a touch of Petite Sirah. A brilliant, deep red hue hints at this wine’s decadent aromas of red fruit, dark chocolate and oak, layered over a subtle suggestion of dust and pencil shavings. Soft tannins frame a generous palate of black cherry, pomegranate, leather and chocolate, giving way to a complex, lingering finish. The McNab will further develop its character and depth with an additional five to 10 years of cellaring.
