Like the North Block designate, this too is made from 100% Pommard clone. Here, the fruit expression is more lush and full bodied, the blackberry, black cherry, mocha, char and espresso flavors carving deeply into the palate. It's a dense, powerful wine that's beautiful now but structured to age. Enjoy it through the next decade.
