The usual comparisons are evident here between the two wines and the Block 5 is immediately identifiable for its earthy, spicy, mineral notes compared to the fragrance and Pinot purity of the Original Vineyard. Sure, there is much delicious red and dark berry and sappy fruit here to identify and enjoy. The palate is multi-layered and racy and builds with creaminess as the mouth coating texture builds and flows. It is a driven wine with a very, very long finish. It certainly has a long and delicious future ahead.
