New Releases tasting. Michael Cooper had this to say:


"Dark and sturdy, with fresh cassis, plum, spice and nut flavours, showing excellent ripeness and richness.  Concentrated, firmly structured red with obvious cellaring potential; open 2014+." 


Jo Burzynska MA AIWS, Wine Editor at the NZ Herald had this to say: "This Waiheke Island Cabernet exhibits dense ripe dark berry fruit with notes of dark chocolate and spice supported by firm structuring tannins."  


A classic example of the stunning 2010 vintage, with excellent concentration and deep colour. Chocolate notes mingle with ripe black Doris plums, brambles and spice. The palate is luscious, muscular, and fleshy, with a satisfying, long finish.
