Collaboration Wines ‘Argent’ Hawke’s Bay Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

Cabernet Sauvignon from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 12-Aug-2013
‘Argent’ is "the colour of silver”. Cabernet Sauvignon from gravelly vineyard sites blended with a small parcel of Merlot from heavier soil, fermented to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 20 months in new and seasoned French oak barrels. Very full, near impenetrable black-red with youthful purple hues. Concentrated, focussed, ripe blackberry and blackcurrant aromas are entwined with subtle plum notes, with pencil shavings and cedary oak elements adding detail. Medium-full bodied and elegantly proportioned, this has a concentrated core of sweetly ripe black berried fruits with liquorice, currant and herb nuances, along with spicy oak. The mouthfeel is textured with fine-grained tannins and the palate is carried somewhat by the acidity, leading to a long, lingering, spicy, black-plum finish. This is a ripe, black-fruited Cabernet Sauvignon with fine tannins and sweet oak. Match with roasted red meats or serve with hard cheeses over the next 7-9+ years. 100 cases made. 18.0+/20 Aug 2013 RRP $40.00
