FIVE STARS, 95 points. Sam Kim, Wine Orbit.
Superior single vineyard Cabernet Franc from Hawke's Bay's Gimblett Gravels region.
Sam Kim, Wine Orbit writes "Wonderfully fragrant and instantly appealing, the bouquet shows blackberry, dark plum, cedar and clove with a hint of dried herb complexity. The palate delivers excellent fruit concentration and fine texture, superbly supported by layers of polished tannins. The wine offers richness and generosity, as well as poise and harmony. A gorgeous expression of the variety. From the Gimblett Gravels district."
