2007 TR Passalacqua Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, Block 4
This wine was tasted on January 26, 2019 from a 750ml bottle that was stored between 50-55 degrees Fahrenheit. Older vintages may show some bottle variation depending upon storage conditions and differences in cork density. Also, please note that some library bottlings may take an additional one to two weeks to process and ship.
Block 4 unveiled its dark side in the 2007 vintage. The color is rich and shows no signs of age. Aromas of ripe blackberry, cassis, and fleshy black plum lead into a dense lush palate with great tannin structure, finishing chewy and deep. Enjoy this wine now, and if cellared properly, it will age well through 2029.
Block 4 sits on a North facing hillside, exposing the grapes to gentle indirect sunlight throughout the growing season. This slow even ripening of the grapes brings out depth and density in the wine. The loam soils in Block 4 are also sprinkled with a bit of rock that lends a nuanced minerality to the wine. This unique spot produces the signature Block 4 fruit that we consistently select for its elegance and complexity.
