Hawkes Bay 2020
Incredibly dark and moody in the glass, crimson and ruby. Close your eyes and you’re in the Northern Rhone. A fresh, herbal note lifts a platform of dark juicy fruit ripened to perfection. Sage, Thyme, Cyprus tree, blackberry, quince and pepper are the first act with a black and red cherry baked tart as the second wave of aromatics. On the palate, the broad wine is driven by an elegant acid line. Cherries, baked berry, tea and tobacco lead the mouth feel. As the tannins come to enrobe the mouthfeel the fruit lifts and sharpens. Mellow tobacco, game, leather and spice make for a tasty finish.
