Matua Valley 1996 Smith-Dartmoor Estate Merlot (Hawke's Bay)

Leans heavily toward the tobacco-herbaceous side of the Bordeaux-blend spectrum, although it does blend in some black-cherry notes. Shrill acidity and somewhat green and earthy flavors steer this offering a trifle off course. Joe Czerwinski
