Structured. Influential. Proud.
Grown in the heart of Sonoma Valley, Three Bloks is a signature wine. A blend of 64% Cabernet Sauvignon and 36% Merlot, Three Blocks underwent 18 months french oak aging. Rich aromas of dark chocolate and cigar give way to layered flavors of currant, plum and coffee. The wine finishes with round, soft tannins.
Well-proportioned, smooth, rich and concentrated, offering a mix of supple currant, wild berry and black cherry, with shades of mocha and espresso bean. Gains velocity and depth on the finish, ending with dry, herbal tannins. The best of two bottles tasted. Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Best from 2011 through 2016. 4,037 cases made.
