Winery notes (2019 Vintage)
"The 2019 Matchbook Estate Bottled Cabernet Sauvignon is crafted from grapes grown entirely in our Dunnigan Hills vineyards. The wine opens with the beautiful varietal aromas of mocha, leather and toasty oak. Plush flavours of blackberry, vanilla, deep red fruit and olive tapenade are rich and mouth-coating. The dense flavours surround the tannins for a finish that is well-structured and smooth."

91/100 & #28 Top 100 Best Buys 2020, Jim Gordon, Wine Enthusiast (2018 Vintage)
"This is a brawny, full-bodied and firmly tannic wine that's nevertheless seductive, complex and layered. A dark colour and impressions of tobacco, black currant and sage make it delicious to sip. Best through 2027."
5 Stars & 93/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, May 2019 (2017 Vintage)
"Expressing lovely varietal purity and intensity, the wine shows lifted aromas of cassis, dark plum, tobacco and cedar on the nose, leading to a concentrated palate that is flavoursome and lingering. It is succulent and generously expressed, finishing long and sturdy. At its best: now to 2022."
