Full Review: Matchbook 2017 Estate Bottled Old Head Chardonnay (Dunnigan Hills). This medium-bodied wine is subtle on the nose, but opens up on the palate to rich fruit and spice flavors that coat the tongue. It is balanced toward the soft side, but with underling acidity to balance the richness. Best Buy. — Jim Gordon
On August 30th, we celebrate International Cabernet Day*, which makes it the perfect time to announce our Matchbook 2016 Estate Bottled Cabernet Sauvignon has received 90 Points & Best Buy from Wine Enthusiast, October 2018 Issue. Cheers to celebrating Cabernet, the Matchbook way!
This wine blends subtle spices with rich fruit for a seductive flavor profile. It maintains a velvety texture on the palate and through the lingering finish. Flavors of blueberry and baking spice give it plenty of personality. —J. Gordon
