89pointsVilla Maria 2004 Twyford Gravels Single Vineyard Merlot (Hawke's Bay)

This vineyard was planted in only 2000, yet the wine already shows ample depth. Ripe black cherry flavors are framed by toast, smoke and vanilla shadings from oak aging. Tannins are soft, and the wine relies more on its crisp acidity for structure. Ready to drink.
