2020 Decibel Gimblett Gravels Malbec, Hawkes Bay
In Appearance: Intense deep purple.
On the Nose: color. The nose jumps with fragrant violets, cardamom pods, and juicy ripe plums.
On the Palate: Fruitier than usual at this young age due to the warmth of the growing season and the siltier soils of the Bridge Pa. There are layers of bramble, blackberry, black cherry, all balanced against the signature bright acidity and soft tannins of a Decibel Malbec. We think this will be a great pairing with grilled vegetables or bold, spicy dishes.
