Drink now though 2018.
2010, although a bit cooler than the average Paso Robles vintage, allowed long hang times and good fruit intensity. This particular vineyard site benefits from geographic idiosyncrasies which bring out the best in vine quality. Matching its distinctive terroir to ideal vine genetics and devigorating soils, one can soon recognize the elements that play into this wine’s unique signature. First impressions reveal a scent of sweet earth, toasted cedar and a compote of Indian spiced fruits. More of a Cote Rotie style, the wine has the plushness of macerated dark plums and the confit richness of a slow roasted cassoulet, leading to a seductive creamy finish of more dark fruits, anise, pleasing warmth, and the first whiff of roasting coffee beans. The Block 6 is best enjoyed in the next 5 years through 2018.
