92 Points from Wine Enthusiast! Matchbook 2018 The Herdsman MAL Giguiere Estate Malbec (Dunnigan Hills). This Malbec is filled with plump black and blue fruits, with an elevated acidity that keeps this fuller red wine fairly light on its feet. Integration of oak elevates fruit components without overwhelming; tannins are a calm medium, just gently creating a backbone down the center of the tongue. Flavors of blackberry jam, boysenberry, blueberry, black plum, cacao, anise, nutmeg, fresh violets and damp forest floor. —S.B.
The Herdsman is a blend of the heritage Cabernet clones grown in our Matchbook vineyards. This is a big Cab with an incredibly smooth finish and layers of flavors that travel from oak to fruit to spicy peppercorn.
90 Points Wine Enthusiast: "This wine leads with immediate floral-perfume aromas, moving on toward notes of blackberry, black cherry, crushed violets and purple orchids, cocoa, vanilla, nutmeg and a hint of fresh leather. As it opens, the elevated tannic structure softens and the voluptuousness of the fruits really shines through."
Matchbook Chardonnay is aged in a combination of older barrels and brand-new oak to achieve the right balance of tropical fruit, cream and vanilla.
90 Points from Wine Enthusiast: "This rich and oaky wine offers plenty of butterscotch, ginger and nutmeg flavors on a full body. It's very concentrated in flavor and balanced to the soft side." A TOP 100 BEST BUY OF 2022
From the first pour, there is no doubt that this incredibly aromatic wine is a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. The flavors are a lively explosion of lemon-lime, grapefruit, basil and a touch of tropical fruit sweetness.
