Decant this for at least 45 minutes! It only started to show its great minerality and better fruit after that. Until then it was nice enough, but hadn't had the air to open up into the beauty it is! Good dust nose (typical Wellington), good red fruit, medium body and medium-long finish, with good acidity and soft tannins which don't shout "oak!" at you in the way many American Cabs would. Well-balanced fruity food-friendly wine! Not the world's most concentrated wine, but will probably take on bottle age decently too, and has fine complexity. Great stuff.
