The 2009 19 Block has aromas of cedar and black licorice. A rich entry of black cherry and ripe plum is supported in the mid-palate by oak nuances of vanilla, caramel and graham cracker.
92 Points Pop and pour at Ferrari's in Grapevine ... Rich and lush, and a good value off the list ("good value" being a relative term when you're talking about restaurant prices). Creamy vanilla, bright blue fruits and a little chocolate covered cherry on the backend. Complimented the rich meal quite well. 90 Points Probably a little young, but was still delicious with dinner at a steakhouse. 91 Points Even though this wine is a bit young it sure is good.. The small format made this much more approachable now rather than 6 months from now.
