2013 TR Passalacqua Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, Blocks 18 & 19
This, our most concentrated Cabernet, gets its intensity of flavor from fruit grown in the ideally-shaped eastern bowl of TR Passalacqua Vineyard. This terroir rewards us year to year with an elegant, balanced Cabernet which has been the cornerstone of the Passalacqua Cabernets since 2004. We pick just the east side of these vines, those that have benefited from the gentle morning sun's even ripening. Blocks 18 & 19 grow in rich red, rocky soil and the small bunches it yields consistently have the concentrated, classic Cabernet fruit and the powerful tannins you have come to expect from the Blocks 18 & 19.
