2019 TVH Cabernet Sauvignon Block 8 750ml
Showing textbook Oakville notes of chocolate, crème de cassis and tobacco leaf, the Block 8 displays seamless integration of powerful (but evolved tannins) and grace, offering full-bodied richness and a gorgeous, nearly opaque color.

HARVEST - 2019 “The heavy rainfall in February, March and May (over4”) really helped bring harvest in line with more
normal dates. Despite a fairly warm summer with several heat events, the grapes picked in September were harvested with great integrity and wonderful flavors. Then, low humidity and windy conditions events happened in October pushing the grapes towards higher Brix with ripe, concentrated flavors. Overall, the wines have developed wonderful flavors, dark colors with very smooth, approachable tannins.”
