Red Wine by Pegasus Bay from Waipara Valley, New Zealand. The upfront aromas and flavours suggest raspberry, pomegranate, black cherry, purple plum, chocolate and spice. These overlie savoury hints of barbecued meats, grilled mushrooms and black olive tapenade. It is richly textured and mouth filling with powerful but velvety tannins that flow evenly through the palate, helping to draw out the lingering aftertaste. While ready to drink on release it can be expected to cellar well and evolve gracefully for many years.
