The dark, full-bodied 2019 vintage (5*) is a Hawke's Bay blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (54 per cent), Cabernet Franc (43 per cent) and Tempranillo (3 per cent), matured for 20 months in French oak (53 per cent new). Powerful and youthful, it has concentrated, fully ripe blackcurrant, plum and spice flavours, showing very good complexity, in a classic claret style, with obvious cellaring potential. Best drinking 2024+.
