New Zealand’s Pellucid Wines: More Light Than Heat , Stephen Tanzer, May 2016

Walter also opened a bottle of the 2012 Block 3, which offered sexy scents of red fruits and truffleyunderbrush and lovely sweetness to its lush flavors of strawberry and smoke. This wine from thick-skinned grapes and a cool summer has plenty of fat but is a bit burlier and seems more heavily extracted than the 2013 version. I rated it 93 points and recommend that it be consumed within the next four or five years. 93 Points.
