Craggy Range Te Kahu Gimblett Gravels 2015


This is a high quality merlot blend (76% merlot, 14% cabernet sauvignon, 8% cabernet franc and 2% malbec) from Craggy Range in Hawkes Bay in New Zealand.  It has blackcurrant, clove and earth aromatics that are Bordeaux like, although more left bank than right.  The palate has great length and ripe tannins.  Ready to drink now, this is an excellent wine that impresses beyond its price.  Rating: Very Good. Abv: 13.9%. Price: $35. Website: www.craggyrange.com
