2019 TR Passalacqua Cabernet Sauvignon, Block 4

Tasting Notes

This wine shows fleshy plum, blackberry, and mocha, with a hint of anise in the background. The beautifully fine tannins show breadth and compliment the oak structure, finishing with sweet leather, and dried cherry notes. This is such a complete wine, showing complexity and depth up front, which continues all the way through the palate to the smooth and lengthy finish.

Winemaker's Notes

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.
