Craggy Range "Te Kahu" Gimblett Gravels Vineyards 2007 750m92 Points - The Wine Advocate "The 2007 Te Kahu Proprietary Red, a Bordeaux blend matured in new French barriques, has a deep dark chocolate-scented nose with dark cherry, Doris plum, cedar and a touch of freshly rolled tobacco. Good definition. The palate is full-bodied with firm tannins, great depth, a little furry at the moment with mouth-coating black fruits. Smooth and focused, primal and sensuous on the finish with a slight bitter cherry edge. Broody but it draws you in. "Winemaker's notes: Te Kahu is a single vineyard proprietary red wine sourced entirely from Craggy Range's Gimblett Gravels Vineyard. "Te Kahu" means "the cloak" in New Zealand's native Maori language. It symbolizes the mist which rolls down and covers the valley next to Craggy Range's Giants Winery in Hawkes Bay. Opaque garnet core with youthful crimsom hues. Aromas of ripe plum and fruit cake characters neatly meshed with sandalwood and spicy cinnamon overtones. The overall aromatic impression is one of brooding complexity. Fine layers of mouth filling tannin provide the texture and structure to support ample fruit flesh. Natural acidity completes this seamless integration, resulting in wine with uncommon length and power.

92 Points - The Wine Advocate"The 2008 Te Kahu Gimblett Gravels Vineyard is a blend of 64% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc, 14% Cabernet Sauvignon and 7% Malbec matured in 48% new oak for 18 months. It has an introverted bouquet with blackberry leaf, cassis, damson, vanilla and a touch of blueberry that unfurls nicely in the glass. The palate is tannic and very well defined, a captivating symmetry here with an irresistible velvety finish that lingers long after the wine has bid adieu. Although it already shows considerable breeding, it will offer more later. Drink 2014-2022+. "Winemaker's notes:Very dark color. Blackberry, cinnamon, sandalwood, and oyster shell like minerality mesh for an intense and complex aromatic profile. Layers of fine tannin lend tension to the opulent fruit flavors and provide the framework for the long and intense finish.
