Matua ‘Single Vineyard’ Matheson Hawke’s Bay Merlot 2009 $69 

Ruby-hued and exhibiting saucy aromas of plum compote and chocolate while in the mouth it has succulent cherry, blackberry and enticing spices.  The oak is beautifully integrated, the acidity is elegant, the alcohol is warming and the finish is solid and muscular.  Definitely a wine for rare eye fillet.
