These cabernet vines are perched on the hillside above the wine caves being the first block that Tony Truchard sees each morning and the last he sees at the end of his day from the bedroom window and, as a result, are meticulously manicured. The hillside is gently sloping to the southwest to capture the strong afternoon sun. With abundant warmth and the owner’s particular eye, this block wants for nothing. The resulting wine, much like the vineyard it hails from, is firm, polished, and full of life. Both vine and wine we expect to be around for many years to come.
