Decibel Wines Gimblett Gravels Testify Red Blend 2019 $56

Testify is the flagship red from Dan Brennan at Decibel and this vintage, from one of the holy trinity of Hawke’s Bay harvests (2019, 2020 & 2021) is a stonkingly good, certified organic blend of 60% malbec and 40% merlot which roars with spiced berry energy, mocha notes wrapped around a core of meaty layers on the mid-palate. Finishing with generously proportioned, muscular tannins, it deserves a large, swirlable glass or another 6-7 yrs in the cellar. Powerful stuff.
