Cinnabar Wine’s Tasting Room is a pretty cool little spot on the main drag in downtown Saratoga, CA., well…it’s actually a pretty good sized tasting room for being right downtown. We tasted through a few wines including a great 2007 Marsanne (Paso Robles fruit), a 2007 Chardonnay (great nose, nice minerality), a 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon (full, good fruit, quite nice) and a 2008 Mercury Rising (Bordeaux blend- very good, but young).
They have two labels, Tapestry and Medallion, which, combined make about 15,000 cases. Tapestry is the distributed wine label, while the Medallion label is for the tasting room and wine club.
It really was a great time, check out the video and you’ll see what the “scene” is like on the street. They also had a great patio to sip wine on when the weather is warm enough. Cheers folks, and let us know if you’ve ever had their wines or been there!!
Seriously, tell us, we want to hear about your wine travels too!!
