Brookfields ‘Reserve’ Hawke’s Bay Cabernet/Merlot 1998

Cabernet Sauvignon from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 22-Nov-2013
A dark-coloured wine, but now fully mature and integrated with a smooth expression on nose and palate of secondary dried fruits intermixed with cedar and earth, but also a little gamey brettanomyces lurking in the background, the mouthfeel just beginning to show signs of drying out. It has just-sufficient fruit and toasty, cedary oak to redeem it into pleasantness, but drink it up now!17.0/20 Nov 2013
