Trinity Hill

Trinity Hill by John Hancock 2008 Gimblett Gravels Syrah, Hawke's Bay
N: Five spice, leather, dark broody and focused black currant plus blackberry fruits; reminds me of the vintage leather upholstery on the inside of an old Jaguar car. Complex dark rose and vibrant youthful oak.
P: WOW! The concentration of the delicious mouthwatering flavors, fine tannins and oak all suggest a drink now example - HOWEVER the structure, length and focus of each component suggests a wine that will age gracefully for 15 years - this is a sleeper wine - give it time. The long oaky, fruity and complex finish affirms this. 95 Points.
