Winemaker Notes

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 Cabernet’s since 2004. Blocks Eighteen and Nineteen grow in rich red, rocky soil and the small bunches it yields, consistently have the focused, classic cabernet fruit and the powerful tannins you have come to expect from these vineyard blocks.

Cooperage Notes
