2009 Pinot Noir Block 5

Tasting Date: 20 January 2015

An opulent and densely fruited entry is an instantly beguiling introduction.  Notes of blueberry and sweet cherry add to the overall sense of anticipation.  The fruit sits vibrantly atop an earthy, forest-floor structure, flowing mid-palate and satisfying chocolate finish held aloft by coarse tannic pillars. Offering great pleasure now with further improvement as reward for patience.

Tasting Date: October 2010

The nose leads with florals: rose petals and violets. The palate is brooding and very textural, showing the huge potential lurking in the shadows. The balance is very much one of rich but fine tannins bouncing off the structure of the acid, with richness coming from the tightly bound fruit. The length of the tannins which echo through the finish indicates this will be a classic vintage.
