Mission Estate Hawke's Bay Cabernet Sauvignon (2020)

Priced sharply, the 2020 vintage (4*) has good muscle and depth, making it a match for many $25 reds. Matured for 15 months in a mix of oak barrels and stainless steel tanks, it is full-coloured and mouthfilling, with generous, ripe blackcurrant and plum flavours, a hint of herbs, supple tannins and a rounded finish. Drink now onwards.
