Mahurangi 'Mostly Merlot' with Cabernet blend 2010 14.5%
N: Lots of plum and sweet red fruits followed by some Cabernet suggestions (bell pepper and Blackberry), moderate oak, generous and inviting.
P: Dry, youthful, warm and flavorful. plenty of fruit flavor to off-set the tannins (Med+); medium+ acidity and moderate oak. Overall some moderate complexity completes the palate - a balanced wine in a drink now style - with food. May also cellar through 2013 and drink by end of 2014.
