Villa Maria Reserve Gimblett Gravels Hawke's Bay Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot (2020)

The 2020 vintage (4.5*) is dark and mouthfilling, with concentrated, ripe blackcurrant, plum and spice flavours, and a seductively smooth finish. It shows very good power and richness, but in its infancy also a slight lack of the density, complexity and structure of top past vintages. Time will tell. Best drinking 2025+.
