Cellaring red

Te Motu 2010, Waiheke Island, NZD $95

A cabernet sauvignon dominant blend with merlot and cabernet franc. A richly-textured wine with dark berry, Christmas cake, liquorice, cedar, cigar box and with emerging savoury bottle development. Complex and obviously long-lived wine that should continue to give pleasure for at least another decade, possibly more, depending on cellaring conditions. (Cork)
