92 POINTS | Cameron Douglas MS
New from the iconic Church Road in Hawke’s Bay, this Cabernet was made from a single vineyard and crafted by one winemaker. This wine was made to show off the full potential of site and exemplify what Church Road is all about. Rich and powerful, this is one to tuck away for a few years.
Cameron Douglas MS writes "Immediately alluring bouquet of Cabernet with aromas of Violets and black fruits, sweet bell-pepper and warm gravel stones. Other non-fruit aromas from sweet tobacco to baking spices, sweet olive then back to dark red berries and plum. Tannins are fantastic - resolved, complete and crucial to the length and finish of the wine. The plush core of fruit and long finish presents a wine with excellent potential."
The winery writes "Rich, dark berry fruit and earthy complexity with lifted notes of sandalwood, cedar, violets, florals thyme and a hint of vanilla."
