Te Mata Awatea Hawkes Bay Cabernets/Merlot 2014, NZ

A deep, midnight red, aromas of ripe blackcurrant, blackberry and red fruit. Layers of cocoa-cherry spice and flicks of cedar, with concentration and charm of the very good 2014 Hawke’s Bay vintage. A stylish and expressive cabernet. The final blend is 45% cabernet sauvignon, 33% merlot, 14% cabernet franc and 8% petit verdot.
