Big rich red

Decibel Amplified Red Wine 2014, Hawke’s Bay, NZD $28

A blend of malbec 85% and merlot 15%. Big, rich red that is clearly malbec dominant with its rich, almost chewy texture and dark plum, berry, spice and chocolate/mocha characters. Impressive now but with the potential to develop well.
