2016 Block 3 Cabernet Sauvignon
Our estate vineyard is divided into more than 20 different “blocks,” isolating different varieties, rootstock, soil profiles, and vine age. We know each block well. They all have different personalities and stories, and some are special enough to make into their own wines. Block 3 is the best example of that. Situated on our eastern half, this small block has a rare composition of soil and drainage that produces our most flavorful and complex Cabernet Sauvignon.
Aromas of lightly smoked oak cracked black pepper and bright red fruit on the nose. On the palate, sweet, dark fruits fill the mouth reminiscent of boysenberry and blueberry pie. A block designate that is elegant and soft, with approachable tannins and a finish that leaves you begging for another sip.
