BABICH THE PATRIARCH 2011

Wine Region: Hawke's Bay - Gimblett Gravels, New Zealand

Grapes: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec

Tasting Notes

The nose is brimming with blackberries, black currents and forest fruits which are joined by plum and tasty savoury notes. Liquorish and spice aromas intermingle perfectly. The palate is sweet and abundantly fruitful on entry developing complex savoury notes that mingle delightfully with the fruit. Gentle oak supports layers of cocoa and leather. The tannins are soft, the weight full-ish and the finish is long with lingering dark berry fruits.
