Dark fruit, cherry, cocoa, chocolate, and spice drive this Cabernet Sauvignon blended with Malbec and Merlot from the Yountville appellation. The Pelissa Family story dates to 1902 when Joseph first purchased land in Napa Valley. Now the legacy continues with the 4th and 5th generation overseeing their family of wines.
"Moderately tannic texture on the palate which frames flavors of dark fruit, chocolate, and spices and a touch of good acidity to keep it well balanced. The fruit for this blend is sourced from both our Block House and Mill Race Vineyards in the Yountville appellation of Napa Valley. Block House is a 292-acre vineyard that contains 14 different varietals. This vineyard tends to benefit from the cooling winds originating from San Pablo Bay. The row orientation for this vineyard is Northeast-Southwest. Chockablock utilizes Malbec, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon from Block House. Mill Race is a 35.57-acre vineyard located across the Napa River from Block House. The Cabernet Sauvignon planted at this vineyard is also incorporated into this blend. The growing degree days accumulated by Mill Race are typically 10% higher than at Block House. Mill Race also has a North-South row orientation, exposing the fruit to more sunlight, resulting in a different style of Cabernet Sauvignon compared to Block House. Both of these properties are family-owned and certified-organic." - winery
