Red berry fruit, chalk, mint, rose petal and white pepper give the Block 43 a distinctive upper range of brightness that works so well with its energetic, mid-weight personality. Light on its feet yet also deep, the 2018 is positively stellar. -- Antonio Galloni

More plum/ruby-hued, with a big nose of salted blackberry and raspberry fruits, iodine, leafy herbs, and rocky minerality, this beauty hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, bright, juicy acidity, some solid tannins, and a great finish. It shows the more mineral, briny, seaside style of this vineyard brilliantly and will keep for 7-8 years.
