In a poignant memorial to David, the final wines of the tasting were his first (1975) and last (2007) vintages of the South Block. In this flight of '85, '83, '82, '81, '81, '80, '76, '75, and 2007, three times as many people voted the 1975 their favorite wine of the flight.

Superb balance raises the wine above the rest. A light floral rose petal nose and the flavor is a constantly changing arc of raspberry, strawberry, fresh thyme, minerals, sweet violets, and anise. Unusual, gentle tannins with a hint of old oak barrel, the only indication of the age of the wine. The scent and flavors changed rapidly with air, gradually fading into the distance. Not only extraordinarily beautiful to drink, it's a historically significant wine whose like can never come again. Acidity 5/10 Flavor +7/10 Tannins 5/10 Balance Superb Alcohol 3/10
