2005 Craggy Range Sophia Merlot Cabernet Franc Hawkes Bay
This is a similar blend to Chateau Cheval Blanc and has a wonderful complex bouquet of ripe plum and black cherry fruit, a pretty floral notes and violet floral tones. Rich and elegant on the tongue with a smooth silky texture and a long and layered finish with notes of herbs, fresh earth and dark coco spice. Finish 50+ Most Excellent
Sophia means â€˜wisdomâ€™. It is the collective wisdom of those charged with its creation now and that of previous generations passed on, that makes this wine we call "Sophia" so special. Produced entirely from our Gimblett Gravels Vineyard nestled on the right bank of the Ngaruroro River, it is a blend of the very best Merlot and Cabernet Franc parcels of the vineyard. Always classy, always evocative and always richly textured.
(86 points) Very concentrated, with sweaty saddle leather flavors battling black currant, mineral and violet tones. Lead pencil, peat moss and gripping tannins linger on the leathery finish. Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now through 2010. 500 cases imported. â€“DS Issue: May 15, 2008
List Price: $61.50
