Alluviale Merlot Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 Hawke's Bay
Powerful bouquet of very dark to berry fruits of blackberry and dark cherry then Doris plum; violets, loads of new oak and a quivering youthful presence. On the palate - full-bodied, dark, very fruity and engaging with blackberry and dark plums, balck boy peach and new oak; medium+ tannins and acidity; long finsh. A wine that could be enjoyed  now - if decanted - otherwise best from 2020 through 2030.
