    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 2008 19 Block Cuvée is Cabernet Sauvignon-based, layered with Malbec, Merlot and Syrah to produce a wine with pronounced fruit characteristics. Aromas of black cherry compote and ripe plum are accentuated with hints of vanilla and cardamom. A silky mouthfeel of cassis and milk chocolate leads into an immensely satisfying and lengthy finish.

    The layers of flavor in this wine pair well with complex foods, including braised or grilled meats like lamb, pork or duck; spring or sweet onions; earthy flavors such as mushrooms, eggplant and fennel; harder cheeses with salt crystals such as Bravo Farms Silver Mountain or Beecher's Flagship Reserve.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Fresh, pure and snappy, with vivid blackberry and wild berry, currant, sage and cedar. Well-built, showing firm acidity and just the right amount of tannins.

    Grown on the steeps of Hess's Veeder Summit vineyard, rising from 1,300 to 2,000 feet with views of the Pacific, this is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (69 percent) with Malbec, Syrah, Merlot and Petit Verdot. It's foresty and cool with the juiciness of blackberries and strawberries, then it finishes peppery, soft and relatively gentle for a mountain wine. A full-bodied blend for roast lamb.

    A really good value in a blended red. Nice nose, smooth taste and finish. Will go well with a wide range of dishes.

    This wine was just ok. I tried it from the bottle and then decanted it and it actually tasted better decanted. A bit too fruity for my taste.
