For the past four decades, Matanzas Creek Winery has focused on creating site-expressive wines. Throughout the years our methodology has remained the same: utilize a range of vineyard clones and fermentation vessels, and explore new farming and winemaking techniques, to produce thoughtfully crafted, expressive, and balanced wines.
Fruit from the famed Russian River Valley’s Kelli Ann Vineyard, this wine offers power and concentration. Creamy in texture, beautiful fruit notes balanced by notes of stone, orange marmalade, honeycomb and floral aromas make for a wonderfully complete experience on the palate.
Multi-layered and elegant, the Desvelado showcases aromas of fresh satsuma plum, boysenberry, violet blossoms and fresh cut pomegranate. Savory flavors of tart red cherry, boysenberry bramble, leather and lilac cuttings elevate the midpalate and accentuate the bright, age-worthy acidity.
There is a moment during blending when a winemaker knows they have crafted a wine that is simply captivating! Our winemaker describes this feeling as ENCANTADORA, a Spanish word meaning enchanting. This blend is 85% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc. Multi-layered and elegant, Encantadora showcases aromas and savory flavors of baking spices with warm plum and boysenberry bramble as well as cherry tart which accentuates the long beautifully evolving finish.
