Block Nine - Caiden's Vineyard - Cabernet Sauvignon
Overview: Our family started Block Nine in response to changes in the Pinot Noir market. Demand for moderately priced Pinot Noir spiked leaving consumers with few choices of smaller production Pinot Noir from California. After years of making only Pinot Noir with consistently high ratings, we expanded our product offering to make great value Cabernet also. This is our inaugural release. We hope you enjoy it.

He previously was head of winemaking at Franciscan, Mt. Veeder, Robert Mondavi, Estancia, Ravenswood, and Quintessa brands.
Tasting Notes: The Block Nine Cabernet Sauvignon exhibit aromas that gush of warm plum and blackberry fruit flavors. This wine is well built up front with flavors of black currant fruit, cassis and hints of sweet spice. It shows good energy as licorice and apple wood accents complete its complex finish.
