(94-96 points) The 2009 Block B (Syrah) is a huge, explosive wine loaded with personality. Violets, flowers, mint, grilled herbs and tar add considerable lift and freshness to layers of sumptuous dark fruit. The 2009 has an upper floral register and sweet inner perfume that is absolutely irresistible. The wine continues to open up beautifully with time in the glass. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2017. - AG

Profound stuff, the 2009 Epoch Estate Wines Syrah Block B Paderewski Vineyard, from a cooler, north-east facing slope of limestone soils, is 100% Syrah that's aged for 23 months in 43% new French oak barrels and puncheons. Boasting phenomenal aromas of black and blue fruits, black pepper, licorice, grilled meats, and charcoal, this stunning Syrah is full-bodied and the most rich, decadent, and concentrated of the '09s. Impeccably balanced, structured, and with awesome concentration, this maintains superb definition and clarity on the palate, while staying light, fresh, and very easy drinking. Bottles should be given 2-3 years of bottle age, and then consumed over the following 12-15 years.
