2010 Hawke's Bay Helmsman by Sacred Hill 14%
Cabernet Sauvignon , Merlot and Cabernet Franc
N: Fragrant and intense - black fruits of ripe blackberry, blueberry, dark plum, chocolate, oak spice and gravelly sand soil suggestions. Medium+ complexity, but also quite young overall.
P: A big and powerful wine with concentrated black fruit flavors along side high tannins and acidity; chocolate and brown spices, gravels and a lot of texture. Tight, youthful, powerful and commanding. Decant for service or cellar for another 5-8 years. A fine wine.
