Stonecroft 2016 Gimblett Gravels Cabernet Sauvignon (Hawke's Bay)

Opaque in color, this dense, herbaceous wine starts with a nose of plush currants, graphite, dried tarragon and an assortment of other dried herbs along with a good lick of slightly synthetic-feeling oak. While the alcohol doesn't appear overly high, there's a warm bitter feeling to the palate, where a thick coat of drying tannins nearly overwhelms the ripe fruit. Give this time to settle and then give it a lengthy decant. Drink 2022–2039. Christina Pickard
