2009 TR Cabernet Sauvignon, Block 4
The 2009 Block Four greets you with aromas of cherry and cassis, preceding the fresh fruit flavors of cranberry and red currant. These are tempered by the sweet, smooth oak from its long barrel aging. The finish is long and velvety with plenty of tannin and a nice acidity. Block Four is your pick to savor with rich meats and spiced foods.
The westward slope and north to south orientation of Block Four on TR Passalacqua Ranch provides the optimum amount of sun for the fruit in this wine, and the indirect sunlight late in the growing season allows for slow even ripening of the grapes.
