Arietta "H Block-Hudson Vineyard" Red, Napa Valley 2012
94 Points Wine Advocate
The 2012 Proprietary Red Blend H Block is a St-Emilion look-alike blend of 62% Cabernet Franc and 38% Merlot. It boasts a dense purple color as well as an inner-core of gorgeously sweet and fragrant notes of blackcurrants, blueberries and mulberries, striking elegance and precision, and serious intensity as well as length. Give it several more years of bottle age to develop more nuances, and drink it over the following 15-20 years. It could turn out to merit an even higher score.
