- Drenched in brooding flavors of ripe dark cherry, raspberry and a touch of toasty oak from barrel aging, this is Cabernet at its most elegant and intense.
- Winemaker Jonathan Pey set out to make a mighty Mendocino Cab by sourcing the best fruit from Redwood Valley and blending together small, stellar lots for an unforgettably rich and robust red.
- “We made only 25 barrels of this wine. Some wineries spill that in a week,” Pey said. It's a precious, rare vintage – and your special access to this gem is Jonathan’s way of thanking you for all your support.
For the very best of majestic Mendocino in a single bottle, look no further! From the rich taste of ripe plum and mouth-filling texture of Petite Sirah, to the spicy pepper and savory bacon-like flavors of Syrah, to the delicately fruity flashes of pomegranate and raspberry in the Grenache and Carignan – it’s all here!
Ondine’s Mendocino ties go way, way back. She works closely with some of the region’s very best growers who have kept their old vines instead of pulling them, just so wild, wonderful wines like this can still be made!
Ondine says to try and spot each of the distinct flavors in this richly layered red as you sip through – or better yet, pair it with your choice of French fare like Ratatouille or Cassoulet and let the good times roll!
