Alpha Domus 2002 The Aviator Red (Hawke's Bay)

This is a supple, savory and cedary Bordeaux-style blend--albeit one that indulges the current NZ fancy for Malbec (18%). Aromas are mainly black cherries and smoke, but there's an herbal undercurrent that seems to intensify with time in the glass. Does show good length and complexity, so it maybe worth gambling on for the future. Joe Czerwinski
