Expected Hawkes Bay black pepper holds true. There's a whiff of graphite, red berries, blueberry and dark cherry fruit. Time in the glass brings on a lick of red frog/red raspberry lollies. Charred meats and pan juices play a solid hand.
Dusty tannins skip through but the fruit sticks to the mid palate. A good drink no less.
Drink over the next few years.
