Babich The Patriarch Red 2013 Hawke's Bay - 6 Bottles

Availability: In stock

Pretty Good

Babich The Patriarch Red is a fascinating blend of 49% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Malbec and 24% Merlot grapes harvested from the Gimblett Gravels vineyard in Hawke's Bay. 17 months ageing in French oak barriques resulted in a dense wine flaunting black-red colour. This diligently crafted wine opens with powerful aromas of blackberry, black plum, boysenberries, and cassis liqueur with spicy oak notes. The palate is flavoured with densely packed black fruits and velvety tannins. The finish is dry, long and complex with spice and liquorice. This gold medal winner wine is an ideal choice for roasted red meats, whole fillet beef, or roasted rare.
