2016 Craggy Range Sophia, Gimblett Gravels, New Zealand (3 x Magnum)

New Zealand Hawkes Bay

While the 2016 Sophia is an impressive blend of 58% Merlot, 23% Cabernet Franc and 19% Cabernet Sauvignon, in the context of the Craggy Range Prestige Collection, it has to be considered a weak link. Dried herbs frame black cherries on the nose, while the mid-palate of this medium to full-bodied wine lacks the rich degree of texture shown by the winery's other top bottlings. The dark fruit flavors turn crisp on the finish, ending in a flurry of tart cherry and cranberry flavors.
