Te Kahu (Hawkes Bay New Zealand), Craggy Range Single Vineyard 2011 Bordeaux Styled Red Wine, $17.59-$21.99, 89 points, poured a Pantone Burgundy color with a broad clear wine ring.
Aromas were perfumed shy sandalwood, sea breezes, and boysenberry jam.
Medium-bodied with good acidity and drying tannins managed great flavors of black tea, blueberry, and violets.
Finished long on the trailing palate with a reasonable 13% alcohol.
Paired wonderfully with my cheese ravioli, and I extrapolate that it would pair well with a broad range of foods.
Varietals were 69% Merlot, 13% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Cabernet Franc and 9% Malbec
I bought this red wine at the Whole Foods of Bedford.
