Sacred Hill

Sacred Hill Merlot Cabernet 2011 Hawke's Bay 13.5%
Crimson and ruby appearance
N: Aromas of black cherry, black plum, blackberry and apple pie! A forward and obvious oak layer with a light toasty edge. An uncomplicated and attractive bouquet overall.
3.5 Stars

P: Fruity with a spicy oak bite, medium+ tannins and smooth texture; dry finish. Overall a balanced, well made example. I would suggest food with this wine - it is a tad dry, but can be easily enjoyed now and through 2013.
3.5 Stars
