ArsnstRed12HiResJust a few months after its release and Matchbook’s 2012 The Arsonist Red Blend is already turning up the heat. This bold, powerful wine just walked away from the Los Angeles International Wine Competition with a Gold Medal… and a 91-point score from the judges!

With a label depicting Prometheus presenting fire to mankind, this wine is a Titan in a bottle, with 52% Petit Verdot, 24% Cabernet Sauvignon and 24% Merlot.
