This wine comes from four distinct vineyard blocks at Margarita Vineyard. At Block 50, a mixture of shale and rocky alluvium soils promotes naturally low vigor for the development of dark, intensely flavored fruit. The soils are less rocky at Block 49, where the flavors lean more toward the red fruit spectrum. At blocks 6 and 15, ancient seabed soils and cooler growing conditions yield fruit with earthier structure and firmer tannins.. Ancient Peaks Cabernet Sauvignon presents vivid varietal aromas of luscious black fruits with notes of cedar, pencil shaving and black olive. A deep, layered palate unfolds with heady flavors of black currant, blackberry and blueberry with suggestions of cherry, mint, vanilla, and toasted oak. Plump tannins and balanced acidity add length and structure to a richly integrated finish. Enjoy this wine with richly textured dishes, including grilled pork chops, veal roast with mushrooms, stuffed eggplant, filet mignon with black olive sauce and Cabernet-braised short ribs.
