Bold, ripe, deep and fleshy, with juicy red and black fruits and floral scents, offering flavors of black licorice, spice and pomegranate. This is tightly focused and supported by rich, fine-grained tannins. The flavors sail on through the finish.

The 2010 Block B is a spectacular Syrah that shows exceptional aromas of licorice-infused black currants, graphite, dark chocolate, meat juice and serious minerality on the nose. Despite the overall size and intensity here, it remains incredibly fresh and delineated. Full-bodied and concentrated on the palate, this thrilling wine is textured, pure, perfectly balanced and gushes mineral and wet slate like qualities on the finish. Give bottles 2-4 years in the cellar and then drink over the following 15+ years. Drink 2015-2030.
