90+ pts ... Blended of 74% Merlot, 13% Cabernet Sauvignon and 13% Malbec, the 2010 Gimblett Gravels Merlot/Cabernet Sauvignon/Malbec gives a very deep garnet-purple color and presents aromas of freshly crushed blackcurrants, mulberries and warm plums with touches of Mediterranean herbs and pencil shavings. Medium bodied and very well balanced even at this primary stage, it offers a good amount of juicy berry flavors adeptly supported by a medium to firm level of fine grained tannins and crisp acid, finishing long with a slight herbal lift. Drink it now to 2017+. Great value! -- Wine Advocate October 2012

Dark garnet core colour. Spicy notes of cinnamon and freshly roasted espresso beans combine with oak and herb notes of cedar and thyme to overlay a ripe blackcurrant base aroma. The palate exudes elegance via a balance of fine layered tannin and mid palate fruit presence. This wine has a soft texture on a mid weight frame, yet has immense length. Recommended cellaring 10-15 years from vintage.
