Te Awa Farm 1999 Longlands Merlot (Hawke's Bay)

A bigger, richer wine than Te Awa Farm's Longlands Cabernet blend, this Merlot is packed with black-cherry and chocolate aromas and flavors. A supple texture makes this drinkable now, but some black-tea notes on the finish argue in favor of at least short-term cellaring. Try in 2003 if you can wait that long. Joe Czerwinski
