At the beginning of the 2019 growing season here in Napa we had a lot of rainfall and unusually late moisture in the soil. During the long, warm summer, we had few extremely hot weeks because of foggy mornings that led to a long and even finish to the growing season. Because of the long hang time, the wines of 2019 have great color, structure and soft tannins.

Tasting Notes:

The 2019 vintage of the Alice Block is a big, structured, and elegant wine. This beautiful Cabernet Sauvignon is balanced with great color and concentration. On the nose, the 2019 offers fresh blueberries, blackberry, black cherry, baking spices, and a touch of graphite. The palate is smooth, with velvety tannins, blackberry, dried black cherries, blueberry jam, dark chocolate, and graphite that leads to a big, long elegant finish.
