Red Hot Ratings in the 90’s from Wine Enthusiast

by: Virginia Valdez Sandfer

AWARD-WINNING LINEUP  

2018 Matchbook Estate Bottled Cabernet Sauvignon 
{ 91 points & Best Buy }

“This is a brawny, full-bodied and firmly tannic wine that’s nevertheless seductive, complex and layered. A dark color and impressions of tobacco, black currant, and sage make it delicious to sip.”
— Jim Gordon, Wine Enthusiast Magazine”

•••

2017 The Arsonist Red Blend
{ 92 points } 
“This wine is super concentrated and complex in its array of red and black fruit flavors, with subtle oak spices and a rich texture. A blend of Petit Verdot, Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon, it has a mouthcoating effect and a lingering gorgeous finish.” 
—Jim Gordon, Wine Enthusiast Magazine
•••

2018 Matchbook Estate Bottled Petite Sirah
{ 91 points }

“This wine is richly flavored and boldly tannic, literally coating the mouth. It is deep and dark in color, packed with blackberry jam and strawberry flavors, with a mouthfeel that is velvety in texture.”
—Jim Gordon, Wine Enthusiast Magazine
