Plummy and berry, a good wine for a weeknight meal. A light tomato based sauce or bright foods. Not acidic. Benefits from a good amount of air @Sam Stehle — a month ago

Te Mata Estate

Coleraine Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot 2009

Generally regarded as New Zealand’s best expression of a left bank Bordeaux blend. This is a dense Ruby red in colour. Aromas of cedar, cassis, mint, leafy and a menthol note - generally classic left bank descriptors. Quite balanced - a medium plus weight palate - medium tannins and acid. Still a good future into the late 20’s or early 2030s. Sam Kim, who is a NZ wine taster and commentator described this wine on release as the greatest wine ever released in New Zealand which was a big call at the time. Bob Campbell MW said “Coleraine doesn’t get much better than this. “ — 17 days ago

I was just texting with a friend who used to go to New Zealand for rugby. We briefly talked about the wine down there. Had to find a bottle to try. Vineyards owned by actor Sam Neill. Didn’t know that and not that it matters. This wine has almost the same color as raspberry Kool-Aid. Still so young but it has some nice cherry fruit. Excited to drink while reuniting with my couch watching CFB!! — 4 days ago
