About Matthew Fritz
Founded by winemaker and entrepreneur Matthew Bonnano, Matthew Fritz
wines are companion wines to his Napa Valley flagship Cabernet Sauvignon
BonAnno. Matthew Fritz was founded on a few simple principles: Seek out and
source fruit from top North Coast vineyards, let the fruit stand on its own
through a pure, clean winemaking process, and ultimately, ensure every bottle
is a true representation of both the variety and appellation.
2021 was a dry vintage in Northern California leading to smaller fruit clusters packed with concentrated flavors.
Grapes for this 2021 Merlot were sourced from premium vineyards within Sonoma County and Mendocino AVA’s.
Renowned winemaker, Jim Milone, crafts, blends and bottles Matthew Fritz in
Healdsburg, Sonoma County. Jim grew up in the vineyards of his
grandfather’s winery in Mendocino County and currently lives in Northern
Sonoma. His excellent relationships with wineries and growers throughout the
North Coast of California are invaluable to our vineyard sourcing.
The wine is a medium ruby with aromas of cocoa, mocha and fresh dark cherries. The palate elegant, textured and filled with ripe raspberry and cherry flavors. The finish has mouthwatering acidity and silky tannin.
