4.5 STARS 90/100 | Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
89/100 | Cameron Douglas
The latest well priced crowd pleaser from the Haha juggernaut. Softly weighted, fleshy Hawkes Bay Merlot at the right price. You'll never find a safer horse to back.
The winery writes "Grapes grown from ancient river beds in the Hawke’s Bay, has resulted in a vibrant Merlot with dark plum, wild berry and spice notes. Delicious with a big bowl of spaghetti & meatballs, and sitting around an open fire."
Sam Kim writes "The wine is beautifully fruited and fragrant on the nose showing dark plum, sweet cherry, mixed spice and toasted almond characters, leading to an elegantly weighted palate that is plump and silky. It is wonderfully balanced and smooth with a lingering tasty finish. At its best: now to 2022."
