So much for conventional wisdom. This is the Matchbook twist on a BRDX blend: Petit Verdot, Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon. Big, and bad, and concentrated... hear the grill a-sizzlin' now!
They planted a 10 acre vineyard on land that had traditionally grown wheat. Grapes have never planted there before...and nobody thought they would succeed. By 1993, they created the Dunnigan Hills AVA, putting the area on the map as one of Northern California's top growing regions. They developed many more acres on the family farm and became one of the most successful wineries in America! If you haven't, you should give this amazing success story a try.
About the wine
The 2016 Arsonist Red Blend has expansive aromas of violet, rose petal, saddle leather and orange peel. Broad flavours of blackberry, plum and cassis fill the palate; a hint of dark chocolate and baking spice adds complexity to the blend. Firm, but refined tannins add good structure and long, silky finish. Power and grace in a bottle!

"Even from a distance you get this floralness of rose petals and orange blossoms coming from the glass. Come in closer and there's aromas of cassis and dark chocolate. Also, the root beer that I get on every single vintage is still there. On the palate it's medium bodied with chalky tannins and a little pep in its acidity. There's flavors of blackberries, grape juice, dark chocolate, and root beer. Then it finishes with the acidity brightening the fruit." Joey C.
