This wine is made from the middle of Hallberg Ranch's C Block in honor of our first winemaker Don Blackburn. I chose this area of the vineyard because it reflects the style of wine that Don sought to make, wines with charm. C Block has a deep layer of Goldridge sandy loam soil which creates a lean and elegant wine that is acid driven. There is an initial burst of aromatics, fruit and spice. The pallet has layers of fresh fruit complimented by rhubarb and an herbal quality. The wine embodies the cool vintage character with herbal and fresh fruit notes and most of all - charm.
Only two barrels made!
