Saint Clair James Sinclair Gimblett Gravels Hawke's Bay Cabernet/Merlot (2019)

Still youthful, the 2019 vintage (4*) is a deeply coloured blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (68 per cent) and Merlot (32 per cent), matured in tanks and French oak barrels. Full-bodied, with a slightly earthy bouquet, it has strong, vibrant blackcurrant, plum and spice flavours, showing considerable complexity, fresh acidity and obvious potential; open 2003.
