Messenger (Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Malbec) 2010 Auckland 14%
(Produced and bottled by Duck Creek Wine limited)
N: Plenty of oak, plenty of fruit and a distinctive bouquet of black fruits with chocolate, oak and vanillin spices.
4.5 Stars

P: Dry to very dry with a highly textured feel from the tannins and acidity, but well balanced and in harmony with fruit concentration and flavor. Fruit flavors are again black fruit and chocolate which fill the palate. A very specific yet enjoyable wine; balanced with medium+ length and finish. Well made and highly recommended!
4.5 Stars
