Wine of the Week NZ

Obsidian The Obsidian 2013, Waiheke Island, NZD $75

Intense, powerful blend of cabernet sauvignon, merlot, cabernet franc, petit verdot and malbec with strong liquorice, tar, cigar box, dark berry, blackberry, spice and anise. Beautifully structured with sweet fruit supported by ripe tannins. Quite a rich, warming wine. Already four years old but with masses of potential for bottle development. (Screwcap)
