Villa Maria ‘Reserve’ Hawke’s Bay Merlot 2007

Merlot from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 04-May-2011
Very dark, near impenetrable black-red with youthful, purple hues to the colour. This has a powerful, concentrated nose of cassis, violets, minerals and ink. The palate is powerful with plenty of primary black plum fruits, ink and florals, and the most subtle nuances of smoky meat and game lurking. Tannins are significant and the fresh acid will ensure 15 years of development ahead.  May 2011
