Accolades

Not quite as distinctive as some of the other 2009 Block offerings from St. Clair, this is nonetheless a solid wine, exhibiting gently leafy nuances layered over pick grapefruit and melon flavors. It’s mainstream in style, not overly heavy, with a crisp, refreshing finish. —J.C. Wine Enthusiast (Sept Issue 2010)
