The black color and aromas of tobacco and leather seem appropriate for a wine inspired by rock.  Like a good classic rock n’ roll song, this wine is loud and unabashed.  The deep concentration of our ripest release of Rock Block thus far can be attributed to our terroir and meticulous handwork in the vineyard.  Silky tannins crescendo through as it leads to a long finale.  Structure will be rewarded with patient cellaring.  For the patient and impatient alike, decanting is recommended.

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
The majority of this fruit was sourced from two distinctive blocks named “Cinnamon Girl” and “Bohemian Rhapsody” located on our estate. The soils and exposure of these two blocks demonstrate stark contrasts, which are reflected in the wine’s complex profile.
Production Notes
Grapes were picked in the darkness of the early morning hours, and immediately subjected to rigorous selection by our three-tiered hand-sorting system. The berries were gently delivered to tank by our distinctive crane system, minimizing disruption of berry integrity. Cold soaks lasted approximately five to eight days and native fermentations were managed via a combination of delestage, punchdowns and pumpovers. Extended maceration from three to five weeks fine-tuned our tannin profiles. The wine underwent twenty-one months of elevage in 100% new French Oak. The final blend is composed of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Cabernet Franc, 4% Petit Verdot, 1% Merlot, and 1% Malbec.
