B510 Front

2010 Pinot Noir Block 5

Tasting Date: October 2011

This is quite open for a young Block 5 with a vibrant perfume of musk, dark roses, cloves and other exotic spices. The palate has wonderful vivacity: weight but no heaviness, driven far more by a balance of texture, tannin, acid and minerality rather than fruit weight. The finish is like getting in the lift at the ground floor and it goes the wrong way: down into three levels you didn't know existed.

If we did it, it would be because it is a fashion and not because our heart is in it and that doesn’t feel right. So please email, or much better come and see us.
