2015 TR Passalacqua Cabernet Sauvignon, Block 13
This smooth, decadent wine is broad and fruity on the palate, with luscious plum flavors with hints of fennel and baking cocoa, in the background you’ll find a savory quality with umami, and forest floor notes. The tannin is velvety and rich on the palate with a lingering density.
Fruit from Block 13 develops on an eastern-facing, rocky slope in the middle of the vineyard, at the lowest point on the ranch. This site tends to accentuate Cabernet’s berry and plummy characters, showing a softer tannin structure. The Toomes rocky loam and cooler temperatures extend ripening to produce the vineyard’s most classic Cabernet.
