Block 47 Cabernet Sauvignon

Block Highlight Series


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


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



Lastly, the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Block 47 is slightly more modern styled, with gorgeous cassis fruits, tobacco, and obvious minerality grounded by some classy new oak. Dense purple-hued and full-bodied on the palate, it has ultra-fine tannins, straight-up awesome purity, flawless balance, and a great finish. A thrill a minute, it’s worth hiding for 4-5 years and will impress over the following 20-30 years. It's one of the finest Bordeaux blends I've tasted from Washington State.

Detailed aromas reveal a spread of fresh herbal blossoms, lightly earthy notes, citrus zest, tobacco leaf and a light, black-plum tang. This is an unusual Cabernet Sauvignon, unlike any I have tasted from Washington or anywhere else. The palate reveals pronounced desert-sage notes, firm but utterly fine-grained tannin and balanced, palate-enlivening acidity. There is a glowing energy to this wine that is persistent and lengthy. It will benefit from decanting as well as another year in bottle. Worth seeking out. Distinctive, impressive and unusual.
