The Mcnab Red Wine, Mendocino Country, Ranch Vineyard, Vintage 2017
Made with certified biodynamic grapes. Hidden in the rolling hills of a box canyon, where each block displays its individual terroir. The McNab single vineyard cuvee. One of the original Biodynamic vineyards planted in the United States, McNab Ranch is the agricultural heart of Bonterra 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 and the surrounding natural habitat's rhythms and wildlife. This Bordeaux-style blend is the single-vineyard expression of the exquisite McNab Ranch. It opens with an appealing chorus of black plum, potpourri, cracked pepper and bittersweet chocolate notes. Polished tannins frame a generous mid-palate, where notions of raspberry coulis, rose petal and aniseed underpin rich, nuanced notes of Portobello, espresso and grilled toast. - Jeff Cichocki, Winemaker. www.bonterra.com.
