Anthony Joseph Vidal
Vidal Merlot Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 Hawkes Bay
Even, smooth and fruit centric-bouquet with aromas of dark plum, blueberry and blackberry. Violets and dark cherry, toasty oak spices and a hint of boot polish. Dry, firm, weighty, fruity and textured palate. Flavours reflect the nose, medium+ tannins and acidity to match. Balanced and well made, lengthy and totally enjoyable example. Drink now and through 2026. Decanting suggested.
