Cabernet Blend 2018 – Black Market Deal #39487
- Rich, full-bodied
- Hawke's Bay
Folks, we present to you the finest of choices for that special occasion, or significant milestone that may be just around the corner. The precision of viticulture and winemaking that has gone into what is nothing other than a completely polished wine is something to admire. From low yielding sub block selection to manicured vines and manual leaf plucking, the fruit in this bottle has received royal treatment. It doesn’t stop there; cold soaked and basket pressed into french oak barriques (50% of which is brand new) under a temperature-controlled environment pays testament to the hard work put into the winemaking.
Expect complexity; inky black fruits provide a luscious front palate and luxurious spiced mocha dances about alongside lengthy fine-grained tannins. 98 and 97 point scores speak to the class and prestige with which it’s held. Predominantly cabernet sauvignon, it’ll be a joy comparing the similarities this wine has to that of classy left bank Bordeaux gems.
Full price $150.00 from the producer.

Hawke's Bay is New Zealand's oldest wine region, with climate similar to Bordeaux and Sancerre in France. It's no surprise then that their best wines happen to be Cabernet blends and Sauvignon Blanc, as well as Syrah. Unfortunately, most of this gets slurped up within NZ, and we have to bang down doors to get some over to Australia. Lucky for you mofos, we're pretty good at this.
