Tasting Notes: Lush, ripe characteristics of dark fruit, dark chocolate, coffee and vanilla are enhanced by its sweet entry. Supple, soft tannins give structure while pulling attention toward intense fruit flavors and aromas. 68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Merlot, 5% Malbec.
Vineyard: Each of the chosen vineyards have high rock content, which allows cab to slowly grow in soil with very good drainage and poor fertility. Rocky soils produce grapes with round, soft, almost sweet tannins, which are exactly what we are after for Three Blocks. The low fertility soils of Sonoma Valley have excellent drainage, meaning strong roots must develop in order to find water. Vines with deep root penetration are also best able to capture the distinctiveness of the growing site.
