Winemaking

Oak upright tank, native ferment. Aged 20 months in 75% new French oak.

Place

This beautiful block sits on the lower section of the Red Mountain side of the vineyard. Featuring a perfect southwest aspect, it gets the maximum sun exposure for depth and concentration. The land itself is wind-blown loess covering an alluvial floodplain, dotted with indigenous sage.

Winemaker's Notes

Midnight glass-staining color, inky eddies of cassis, black violets, fragrant mint, whiffs of gunpowder tea.

Dark vistas, brisk complexities of fruit.

Finish of black fruits, crushed cacao nibs, a beautiful power.

Abundant, minerally tannins will keep this wine fresh for decades.

High desert ecosystem at its purest: potent, primordial, endless horizons.

Scores & Reviews

96-98 Points

"Another powerful, dense, incredibly impressive wine, the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Block 47 (100% Cabernet Sauvignon) offers a great perfume of cassis, scorched earth, and chocolate. It’s loaded with ripe, opulent fruit yet has plenty of tannins hiding under all its baby fat."
