Sacred Hill

Sacred Hill 'Halo' 2012 Hawkes Bay 13%
Merlot/Cabernet Sauvignon/Cabernet Franc
Rich and dark berry fruits - lush and ripe; chocolate, summer berry pudding and toasty oak suggestions; medium++ complexity.
On the palate a wine with immediate intensity and complexity; lots of dark berry fruit, Doris plum and Blackboy peach, vanillin and spice notes with a little gentle warmth from the alcohol; a very approachable and drink now style - that said 2-3 years in cellar also a good idea.
4.5 Stars
