Villa Maria Reserve Merlot 2004, Hawkes Bay

image With light leather and dark plum to the nose this wine has a magnificent ruby red colour.  The dark plum flavours follow through to the palate and are also complemented with some dark berry flavours.  For a 2004 wine, this wine is very tannic and also very dry.   The structure of this wine will support much longer cellaring.
