Dee Wine Reserve Merlot Cabernet 2019, Hawke’s Bay

Blended Red from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 18-Oct-2023
Moderately deep, ruby-black, even colour throughout. The nose is lifted and generous with aromas of cassis, plum, cedar, violet subtle herbs and an amalgam of spice. Medium-full bodied, aromas of black plum and cassis melded with violet, blackcurrant vine, unfolding cedar, nutmeg and clove spices. The fruit is bright and generous, enriched by fine-grained tannins and spice. Lovely and fresh acid balance carries a sustained finish. This Merlot Cabernet blend is well-made, well-balanced with succulent fruit and a fine structure. Match with grilled lamb or beef steak over the next 3-5 years. Fermented to 14% alc, aged in barrels for 18 months. 18/20 pts (90 pts) Oct 2023 RRP $28
