Winemaker's Notes:

For many years, Cabernet Sauvignon from Block 8 has contributed to Opus One and Robert Mondavi Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve and this Block 8 Cabernet proves no less worthy. From vines situated on thin stony clays, the wine was aged for 21 months in French Oak, resulting in a rich body with layers and layers of complex flavors of black cherry, black berry, sweet red pepper, black olive and bay. The tannins are supple and accessible. A stunning and delicious wine to enjoy now or for the next ten years. (Alcohol 14.2%) 1800 cases produced.
