Attractive wine with sweet ripe berry fruit flavours lightly seasoned with spicy oak. Supple, yet reasonably dense red that's good now but will reward ageing. Bob Campbell, MW. A Proprietary Blend wine from Hawkes Bay in New Zealand. 2007 Te Awa Cabernet-Merlot 750ml

Winemaker's Notes:

The nose suggests graphite, lead and mineral; hard things, yet it seems to be withholding something softer. Tightly guarded, like an ancient treasury, stacked to the ceiling with bounty. Silken oak, intoxicating vanilla spice and the ripest black currants are the gentle secrets within. The palate is twitching and muscular like a prize fighter who will soften, once some of the aggression is punched out. Guarded yet poised, at this youthful stage, and waiting for time to weave its magic, or take its course. There is sweetness here too, a gentle heart hidden. Shackled and brooding at present, of all the 2007 wines this one will reward cellaring the most.
