Villa Maria Merlot Cabernet Sauvignon Hawke's Bay 2013 Cellar Selection
Very dark ruby and purple with crimson highlights.
Plum, chocolate, blackberry and blackcurrant lead the bouquet with lots of smokey toasty oak and sweet vanilla. On the palate - concentrated, rich, dry and full of dark red fruit flavors, sweet oak and mid palate concentration - a lovely wine with a meaty element; plenty of crisp acidity and a long finish. Very nice wine!
