5 Blocks 

Syrah Cuvee


5 Blocks is a fan favorite at Terry Hoage. Syrah leads the blend with its classically dark color, big mouth feel, and savory notes of beef and bacon fat. The Syrah is blended with carefully chosen amounts of Mourvedre, and Grenache, each adding their own unique character. Our 5 Blocks cuvee is generally bigger than the Pick (also a GSM), but can be more feminine in certain years. It always shows beautifully in its youth and is one of the most interesting, balanced, and complex blends that we produce. 

Named for the five blocks of fruit the blend was first made from, it also happens to be the number of blocked field goals Terry made at the University of Georgia (possibly still a school record!).
