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, Petite 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!
