Mills Reef

Mills Reef Reserve Cabernet Merlot Gimblett Gravels Hawke's Bay 2010 13.5%
Crimson ruby appearance
N: Nettles, roasted peppers, pyranzines, tobacco and a huge whollop of black and dark red berry fruits especially blackberry, blackcurrant, dark cherry; violet floral notes mixed with roasted vanillin and wood spices. Some chocolate suggestions as well. I guess you could say there some complexity here!
4 Stars

P: Gutsy, flushed with dark berry flavors and balanced by medium+ oak influences, dried herbs, vanillin, nutty notes and a plum lift. Medium+ tannins and oak, medium to medium+ acidity, dry, balanced and well made. Cellar or drink from late 2013.
4 Stars
