2016 Profile F1 Block
The Fl Block of the Profile Estate Vineyard is the cornerstone of our Profile blend year after year. Just over an acre of Cabernet Sauvignon with eastern and southern exposure, this block sits at an elevation of approximately 600 feet and is made up of primarily Forward-Kidd complex soils. The Cabernet Sauvignon from Block F1 brings depth and personality to the Profile blend. Contributing to the bouquet and overall structure of Profile, this wine is more than worthy to be bottled on its own and exhibits the tremendous concentration and richness of hillside fruit from Napa Valley.
This Block Series bottling offers a very intense nose that starts with notes of game, cherries and ripe black currant. The mouth opens with floral notes, a touch of sweetness and some very savory fine grain tannins. The wine shows a lot of fruit and intensity, and a very pretty personality as well. It will evolve very nicely for the next 20 years but is already very pleasing and drinkable on release.
