2016 Block 27 Cabernet Sauvignon
As seasoned farmers, we carve up our vineyard into little sections, called “blocks,” to keep track of distinct characteristics like grape varietal and vine age. Tucked away amongst acres of renowned Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon, lies our most magical parcel; Block 27, which defies all explanation. Maybe it’s the dirt, maybe it’s the exact sunlight, but this special little block produces some of the best Cabernet Sauvignon in the entire world. We’ve learned to let go and just accept that sometimes, the earth just knows best.
Made entirely from Cabernet Sauvignon, this wine boasts aromas of rich raspberry, red currant, violets and freshly smashed blueberries. On the palate, you will enjoy intense blackberry flavors intermingled with mocha, creamy coconut and cedar. This intense, yet refined wine, displays character you would expect from Stags Leap District with a soft, accessible soul.
