2018 Block Six

The inaugural release of Block Six is very exciting for all of us here at the winery. A project that started in 2014 with the planting of Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, and a little bit more Cabernet Sauvignon on the Estate. Planted on the steepest hillside slopes, growing in beautiful volcanic soils, these vines produce fruit with exceptional depth and character — we knew from the very beginning this had not only to be it’s own wine, but our new flagship. All fruit for this blend was 100% barrel-fermented, a labor intensive technique we use to highlight the aromatics, texture and mouthfeel. This is a serious wine, and one that we cannot wait to share with you!
