Mills Reef Elspeth 'Trust Vineyard' Cabernet Sauvignon Gimblett Gravels Hawke's Bay 2010 14%
N: Powerful, rich and masculine with an oak and resoundingly strong fruit core - ripe and intense with black and blue berry, mull berry, dark plum; medium+ complexity - very young, but also very sophisticated.
P: Concentrated with high tannins which are both ripe and sweet, the fruit flavors are also concentrated and sweet adding both structure and balance; high acidity and tannins add a tight and youthful palate feel, but allow the concentration and intensity of the fruit to speak aloud as well. A long and balanced finish. An excellent example.
