Esk Valley ‘Reserve’ Hawke’s Bay Merlot/Malbec/Cabernet Sauvignon 1998

Merlot from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 22-Nov-2013
Impenetrable black-red in colour, with layers of sumptuously rich black fruits, quite sweet and densely concentrated on palate, but encased by serious extract and structure, the tannins a little more robust than expected, this clearly possessing the potential to go another decade. The array of fruit flavours suggests greater complexity is yet to come. 18.5/20 Nov 2013
