The 2009 Block #2 Cabernet Sauvignon follows in the footsteps of our Gold Medal Bella Vista Cab from 2008.  The 2009 is an intense 100% Cabernet Sauvignon harvested from the hillside vineyard Block #2 at Bella Vista in Calistoga. The vibrant red color immediately leads to a nose of red plum, roses, vanilla, soy, and coffee.  This wine delivers a rich mouthfeel with bursts of red berries, cocoa, currant, and licorice.  The 2009 Block #2 Cab provides a lasting finish and a lingering taste of berry filled truffle that is very memorable.  Drinkable now with a firm structure & nice balance that will sustain this wine in the cellar for as many as 10-15 years.  The 2009 Block #2 will continue to rise toward its peak as the red fruits ripen and the soft earthy tones come into their own. 

Grilled red meats always partner well with Bella Vista Cab, but do try the Block #2 with BBQ short ribs, meatloaf, spaghetti, lamb, and even with pizza. 

We suggest pairing with the Tasting Room Sliders as well as with the 55% dark chocolate!
