Blend: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon
Vintage Production: 100 cases
Every aspect of Vangone Estate is about adventure, discovery and exclusivity. From the precarious drive up through hidden backroads, to the breathtaking view that awaits you when you arrive (see picture above), to the luxurious micro-production Cabernet Sauvignons produced here, Vangone is the ultimate insider’s secret.
Stylistically, Vangone is a phenomenal expression of Cabernet Sauvignon: rich and hedonistic, while refined and textured in equal measure. Proprietor Mark Davidowski and winemaker Sam Kaplan (Arkenstone Estate, Maxem, Momento Mori) produce a unique trio of wines: 100 cases each of two individual vineyard parcels, Block B and Block D, as well as masterfully combining them into the Estate Cabernet (250 cases).
Block D faces Atlas Peak to the east, on an incredibly steep part of the vineyard. This Cabernet is characteristic for its fruit-driven nose and incredibly powerful, structured core.
