Gladstone 2003 Auld Alliance Red (Wairarapa)

This blend of 42% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc boats ample cassis fruit and is soft and supple in the mouth. So what is holding it back? It thins out a bit on the finish, and some weedy and stable-y notes mark the bouquet. If you're turned off by ultraclean wines made with superripe fruit, give this one a spin. Joe Czerwinski
