Mills Reef

Mills Reef Reserve Cabernet Merlot Gimblett Gravels Hawke's Bay 2012 13%
A pure fruit bouquet begins this story with violet laced red fruits of raspberry, plum and black berry fruit; medium+ oak with vanillin and toasty wooded suggestions; medium+ subtle but true complexity. On the palate - dry with a core of fruit that reflects the nose; there's also a complexity that pushes the flavors of a nutty oak and soft red flowers; medium+ tannins and acidity; balanced and really well made with a long finish.
4.5 Stars
