Producer notes: "Aromatically very expressive, complete and alluring: florals, black cherry, spice and undergrowth are all present. The palate is so harmonised and integrated that it’s difficult to discern individual characters – a hallmark of a real classic. Finely woven tannins build and coat the mouth for a masterclass in texture. Vibrant fruit and acidity allow the finish to crescendo and take an eternity to gracefully fade."

Not yet reviewed; 2018 vintage rated 97-98 points by James Suckling: "This is a showy edition of Block 5 with so much on offer aromatically, from fine florals in the rose spectrum, rose hips, plenty of spice, citrus peel and sweet red cherries in abundance. The palate has such elegant, long and firm tannin with intensity and depth and it does have the compactness that defines this parcel. There’s such succulent resolve at the finish. This 2018 has bold fleshiness that really is stunning already. There’s more immediate pleasure than you’d expect from a young Block 5. From biodynamically grown grapes. Drink or hold. Screw cap."
