Brick Bay

Brick Bay Pharos 2010 Matakana
5 Stars
N: Complex, dark and sophisticated, not broody, but dark; Chocolate, brown spices, blackberry, blueberry and sweet plum; mocha.

P: Still youthfully firm, but releasing tendrils of temptation with chocolate and spice; mocha and nutty oak; A slowly unfurling complexity. Bordeaux-esque images come to mind, nose and palate - violets and an undercurrent of delicacy on the shoulders of firm tannins. Vine maturity has certainly favored this wine along with smart, clever wine making - bringing together a delightful example. Medium++ to long finish. A wine to cellar or enjoy for another 5 + years
5 stars
