2013 Craggy Range Sophia
Gimblett Gravels, Hawke's Bay, New Zealand

Wonderful nose of ripe red fruits, intense mocha, and fragrant wood followed by full-bodied flavors of bittersweet chocolate, earth, and perhaps leather. Really tasty and bound to evolve happily for several years. Wants red meat.

Winemaker's Notes
"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."

Technical Notes
