Vidal 2010 Legacy Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot, Hawke’s Bay $65

Very refined Bordeaux blend with a strong Cabernet Sauvignon component driving cedar, roasted chestnut, cassis and subtle violet flavours. An intriguing wine that delivers power with great subtlety. Certainly built to last. Should be wonderful in a decade, or two. (Screwcap)
