Sacred Hill ‘Brokenstone’ Hawke’s Bay Merlot 2006

Merlot from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 31-Jul-2014
Very dark, deep, black-red with some purple still, youthful. The bouquet is fulsome and bold with complex, secondary, savoury dark plum and berry aromas, along with brash undergrowth and herbal notes, and lifted dark red floral perfumes. Some resiny oak elements are part of the mix, adding complexing interest. A robust and strong wine with plenty of fruit and tannin extraction, providing grip with mouthfilling breadth. Dark, savoury plums and undergrowth, along with dark chocolate, spicy oak and aromatic lift. Game notes emerge and the secondary nature growing. The hearty mouthfeel and structure carries through to a firm, textured finish. This has plenty of life yet, another decade, easily more, especially in magnum. 18.5/20 Jul 2014 RRP $N/A
