Winemaker Notes

South Face Block Reserve Effusive blue fruit, perfume, roasted nuts, and grilled meats leap from the glass. Not to be outdone, the palate mirrors these beautiful aromatics, picking up earthy notes of gravel, pepper and vanilla bean. Exotic flavors revolve around the blue fruits and black currants, with a streak of charcuterie that brings the finish to a head... leaving textured and elegant tannins, with just a hint of cocoa, in its wake. Decant to enjoy now, or lay down to cellar.
