Clearview Estate Winery 'Cape Kidnappers' Merlot 2015 Hawke's Bay
Intense bouquet of ripe red berry and stone fruit, oak and power - aromas of black cherry and dark plum, sweet new oak with dark spice, toast and smoky tones, youthful, primary and engages the senses. On the palate - firm, youthful, loaded with fruit and acidity, plenty of oak, tannins and acidity. A very youthful wine requiring time in bottle to soften and integrate. Plenty of potential housed in the long finish. Drink best from 2018 through 2028.
