Cabernet Sauvignon, Feather Block 


The fruit from Moon Mountain Vineyard’s Feather Block rests at the highest point of the property at 1800 feet above sea level. This block is reserved for our highest end bottlings. The 2011 vintage presented a unique opportunity to craft a 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from this exceptional block. Feather was originally planted in 1990 and is one of only two blocks at Moon Mountain Vineyard that survived the Cavedale fire of 1996. There are no guarantees that we will ever be able to offer a Feather Block Cabernet Sauvignon again.
