Passage Rock Reserve Waiheke Island Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot (2019)

Still in its infancy, the 2019 vintage (5*) is densely coloured and sturdy. Invitingly fragrant and weighty, it is highly concentrated, with fresh blackcurrant, red berry, plum and spice flavours, a hint of herbs, and a tightly structured, lasting finish. Best drinking 2025+.
