From its near opaque, inky purple color to its luxurious aromas of blueberry liqueur, cassis, graphite, vanilla and violets, this is beautifully structured wine. On the palate, firm, age-worthy tannins support layers of ripe blackberry and holiday spice, with a nice note of energetic freshness adding poise and complexity to this rich, full-bodied wine 

Wine Profile
Ratings
The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Block 8 comes from a vineyard planted in volcanic soils and is aged in a combination of French and American oak. This wine has a black ruby/purple color, floral blueberry and blackberry fruit, and a vivaciousness despite its highly extracted, rich, full-bodied style. This is seriously young and promising. Give it 3-4 years of cellaring and drink it over the following 20 years.~Robert Parker
Vineyards
Our renowned vineyard features ten benchland and hillside blocks of Cabernet Sauvignon. To spotlight the rich diversity of our property, we occasionally craft small-production Cabernets from our finest blocks and barrels. Planted to the famed Belle Terra field selection of Cabernet in volcanic soils with an ideal southwest orientation, Block 8 achieves beautiful ripeness, yielding a robust and voluptuous wine.
Winemaking
Key fermentation techniques included indigenous yeast, extended 16-day maceration and 100% whole berries. To accentuate its rich, robust character our Block 8 Cabernet was made entirely from free-run wine.
