2013 Matchbook Lake County Cabernet Sauvignon

August 19, 2016 - Norman Bentley

More and more California Cabernet Sauvignon's are in fact, blended wines, as is the case with the 2013 Matchbook from Lake County. This one is a blend of 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Petite Verdot and 9% Petite Sirah. The result is a polished and smooth, easy drinking Cab which made a good companion for my two inch thick, medium rare fillet.

The wine has excellent color and a fragrant bouquet of cherries and other dark fruit. The flavor has a bright cherry taste with underlying currents of blueberry, and a touch of chocolate which empties into a pleasant mild tannin finish, with a lingering presence of the clean fruit. The alcohol content is 13.9%, and Norm's score is 87.

A good choice for steak or other grilled meats, it would also pair well with a big plate of spaghetti or even a thick slice of rare prime rib. The wine should drink well for another three years.

price : $11 - $15

score: 87
