Trinity Hill

Trintiy Hill by John Hancock 2008 The Gimblett. (43% Cabernet Sauvignon, 41% Merlot, 7% Petit Verdot, 6% Malbec)
N: Highly complex bouquet with a powerful mix of violets (fresh and crushed), lead, blackberry, blueberry, wild raspberry and chocolate. No doubt about the magic of a Bordeaux blend. The oak, while present, seems hardly noticeable.
P: Richly flavored, an avalanche of black and dark red fruits with a youthful, crisp acid bite.
If you must open a bottle of this wine - then do it yesterday in order to enjoy it tomorrow - and decant for service if you sell a bottle. Otherwise cellar for 10 years before you check it again.
The finish is long, powerfully fruity and dry. An asset to any wine list or cellar. 
95 Points.
