This has a slightly deeper hue than the Block 5 but carries the same sense of restraint and purity. The nose has deep-set spicy aromas, some gently flinty/stony notes and a gently leafy autumnal edge to boot. The fruits are centered around blueberries, dark cherries and pomegranates. It's really fresh. With its super smooth texture, the palate has mouth-filling presence in the form of supple, soft and fleshy red plums, raspberries, cassis and dark-cherry flavors. There's a late flurry of spices, and the balance is effortless, floating up out of the finish. Concentrated and balanced. From a great vintage. Approachable now, this has 15+ years in the tank. Try after 2020 for the complete picture. Ranks #49 in James Suckling's Top 100 Wines of 2017. Score - 97. (James Suckling, jamessuckling.com, Jan. 11, 2017)
