Craggy Range Te Kahu Gimblett Gravels Vineyard 2011
Wine EnthusiastThis is firmly built for a wine that includes 69% Merlot. Mint and cedar notes emerge on the nose, while the flavors are black cherry and earth. This medium-bodied wine features an attractive licorice note on the finish, and should easily hold through 2020.
Wine SpectatorOffers a fresh band of cherry and currant flavors, with notes of black tea, spice, tobacco and pencil shavings. The tannins clamp down on the finish, giving this a firm edge. Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec. Drink now through 2020. 1,800 cases imported.
