A wine originally created by Rachael Adler, Block 1 is a field blend of grapes grown on some of the oldest vines here at Hungry Hawk Vineyards. A delicious display of the combination between Rachael’s creative winemaking and the farming practices required to produce premium wines. Her legacy lives on!

For the 2020 vintage, we made a couple of changes to Rachael's original recipe:  The first change was the decision to hang to grapes to extra ripeness which brings out a more rich and bold wine.  The next change we made was to ferment the field blend whole cluster - the vineyard, cellar and tasting room crew got into the bin and foot stomped the grapes prior to pitching the yeast.  That was a lot of fun!  What resulted was a wine with a deep opaque color, rich black fruits and a layered rustic character that will develop as it ages in bottle.
