Block 47 Cabernet Sauvignon
Block Highlight Series
Aged 20 months in 100% 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.
A towering edifice of concentrated black currants, high cacao chocolate, finely ground espresso, candied violet.
Tightly wound, deeply structured, it reveals its secrets slowly.
Stirring and endless finish echoing of black and blue fruits, Ethiopian coffee, mountain flowers.
Will last a lifetime.
2026 - 2050

Scores & Reviews
The 2020 Cabernet Sauvignon Block 47 offers a brilliant perfume of pure cassis fruit as well as flowers, lead pencil, and chalky minerality. It reminds me of a great Saint Julien and is full-bodied, has building tannins, fabulous purity, and a great finish.
