TWWTV Episode 3 - Cinnabar Merlot 2007 and Cabernet 2005

Posted by The Wine Whore |

Wine Whore Review:




This week's poll winner is a winery with a magical story:

"In the fourteenth century, alchemists believed they could miraculously transform ordinary metals into silver and gold with the help of the mineral cinnabar. Consequently, this purple-red derivative of mercury was highly coveted by medieval nobility. Cinnabar founder Tom Mudd (1942�2007) as he captured the magic of alchemy in his handcrafted wines."

Today, Winemaker George Troquato combines small, intensely flavored grapes with meddle-free winemaking to produce three lines of complex, well-balanced wines:

  • Santa Cruz Mountains Wines
  • Central Coast Wines
  • Saratoga village Tasting Room collection of limited-production exclusives
