While the tasting room is chic, especially the deck overlooking the little town, the wines are not anything to go out of your way for - inoffensive, but generally light on flavor without much complexity. This is not Ridge winery.

We went in the evening, when the tasting room becomes a wine bar. Their pinot noir was really good. We purchased some cheese and crackers from their food area (there is no menu for food, just like snacks). They had a live band playing at...More

We have been enjoying our Friday afternoons at Cinnabar. Glass or bottle of wine, some music on the patio- great way to decompress after work. We even picked up our trawler of Mercury Rising during the release weekend!!

Ugh. It started with a lack of warmth on the greeting. Then wine tastings were slung at us like eggs at a diner. No elaborate descriptions. No personality. No love. We were just another $15/person. And to boot, the wines were not even that great....More

Used to be outstanding. Then it got way too popular. Overpriced, too trendy. Can't get service, their knowledgeable wine servers are gone. Too bad they forgot their loyal customers. Dropped their wine club when average price per shipment doubled.

The tasting room is very modern and you can actually sit while you taste. The man who waited on us was very informative about the wines and Levi Stadium. The only food they offer is packaged nuts, crackers and cheese.

There a little bit of heaven in downtown Saratoga when you can sit on Cinnabar's patio, listening to local musicians, with a glass of Malbec to accompany nibbles of cheeses and charcuterie!

I came in on a random Wednesday afternoon. The bar was full but the rest of the room completely open. I was greeted with a friendly smile immediately. They encouraged me to sit at bar, and they'd ask the other patrons to make room. But...More
