Pask Gimblett Gravels CMMF 2019 $22

Holy berries Batman! Those Paskers really know how to blend. This absolutely champion combination of Cabernet Sauvignon 43.8% Malbec 18.8%, Merlot 16%, Cabernet Franc 6.8%  is super-stylish, spice-dusted and saturated with ripe plums, leather and cocoa layers and a dusting of liquorice. 2019 was a sensational vintage for Hawke’s Bay and that vibrant, rich, savoury, refined reds like this can be turned out for just twenty-two dollars is astonishing.
