TOM CABERNET MERLOT 2013

“Unquestionably our best TOM Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot to date from one of the most favourable Hawke’s Bay vintages on record. This is a wine of subtle power, density and seamless, linear progression. A multi-dimensional blend that simultaneously shows great depth of dark, brooding flavour whilst expressing a haunting array of gentle perfume, which for me, is the ultimate expression of great Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.”
Chris Scott, Senior Winemaker

Raymond Chan
Very dark, deep, black-red colour with youthful purple hues. This has a beautifully fresh, vibrant and aromatic nose with lively primary fruit aromas of sweetly ripe blackcurrants and black-berried fruits interwoven with black plums, perfumed dark herbs and black florals, along with fine, savoury green olive complexities and subtle pencil-shavings and cedary oak. Medium-full bodied and elegant with classical proportions, the palate feature and intense and tightly concentrated core of ripe black berried fruits with black plum notes, spices, and cedary oak. The mouthfeel is smooth, refined, near seamless, but supported by fine-grained, significant extraction. The acidity is poised and provides vitality and tension, balancing the power, density and linearity. This is a classically proportioned, vibrant and age worthy Cabernet Sauvignon blend with 10-15+ years of development ahead of it. 67% Cabernet Sauvignon from the ‘Redstone’ Bridge Pa Triangle vineyard and 33% Merlot from the ‘Gimblett’ vineyard in the Gimblett Gravels, fermented to 14.5% alc., The Merlot on skins 26 days and Cabernet Sauvignon for 30 days, the wine aged 22 months in 92% new French oak barriques.”19.5/20 May 2016
