TASTING NOTES
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.
- Maayan Koschitzky, Winemaker

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.”
-Philippe Melka

 96+ points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 

My favorite of the The Vineyard House offerings is the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Block 8, a wine that includes 10% Cabernet Franc. Gorgeous scents of cassis, bay leaf, black cherries and vanilla merge seamlessly on the nose, while the full-bodied palate is richly textured and supple, with a long, velvety finish. Impressively delicious.

This beautiful Oakville hillside is nestled in between the highly distinguished Harlan Estates and Promontory vineyards.
