Awesome little Bordeaux blend from Te Mata. This is made from 100% estate fruit. (In fact Te Mata sell a good quantity of their fruit...so this actually comes from some of the best parcels on the estate they keep for themselves.) Despite being the "entry level" tier of wines this really shows it's pedigree. Dark fruit, earth, cigar box, a hint of charred oak; the nice tannin structure and balanced acidity means this will also keep for 5+ years no problem. Such a great value given the quality of the wine and iconic stature of the producer.
