The Trione Block 21 Cabernet Sauvignon is in a word “Dynamite”! The first impression is soft supple notes of cedar, pipe tobacco and fine leather. Silky and smooth, this wine is a perfect example of tannin and acid balance.
Three generations, four decades, five ranches — our family is deeply rooted in the Sonoma County wine industry. Dedicated farmers for forty years, brothers Mark and Vic Trione own and cultivate close to 600 vineyard acres in three prime Sonoma County appellations: Russian River Valley, Alexander Valley and Sonoma Coast.
Block 21 Cabernet is a single vineyard selection from the Trione Cloverdale Ranch, located on the western flank of the Mayacamas Mountains, in the northern portion of Alexander Valley. The vines, planted in 2001 with Bordeaux clone 337, grow in clay and sandy loam soils underlain with a high percentage of gravel. Cabernet Sauvignon grown in this ideal terroir develops deep, concentrated flavors and fine, smooth tannins.
Pairs well with grilled bone in rib-eye steak cabernet and Point Reyes Bleu Cheese Mousse.
