"Block 21" refers to a hillside vineyard block owned by T. R. Passalacqua Vineyards in the heart of Dry Creek. It is a nicely balanced, rich, chewy Dry Creek Cabernet with a classic California Cabernet profile. You don't have to search hard for the flavors in this forward, dark-currant and berry-flavored wine that also shows some dried-rose-like floral notes. Mouth-filling richness and long finish. Excellent wine that's ready to drink, from a winery off of Los Amigos Road just north of Windsor.

Tasting Notes:

Deep, dark and ruby in color with bing cherry, eucalyptus, strawberry and cedar in the nose. Flavors of red berries, black cherry and bittersweet chocolate with a medium body. Abundant mouthfeel with no hard edges–bright acid, tannins with a slight toast of oak. A lasting finish of cassis, cedar and tobacco. Drink now, but will age gracefully for 5-8 years.

Notes: 100% French oak barrels, 40% new, 60% 2-3 years old

Chemical Analysis:

Alcohol: 14.2% pH: 3.5
