Typically a sturdy Hawke's Bay red with drink-young appeal. The 2002 vintage, a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (47 per cent), Merlot (44 per cent) and Malbec (9 per cent), is an attractive red with sweetly oaked red-berry, spice and herb flavours showing good length.

Typically a sturdy Hawke's Bay red with drink-young appeal and lots of flavour. Due to the devastating frost of November 2000, which decimated the crop, the 2001 vintage is a blend of Australian (55 per cent) and New Zealand wine. Principally Cabernet Sauvignon (80 per cent), with Merlot (13 per cent) and Cabernet Franc (7 per cent), it's a full-coloured, flavoursome, fresh and supple wine, marrying the relatively herbaceous characters of New Zealand Cabernet Sauvignon with the riper, softer flavours of Australia.

Michael Cooper (1999 Vintage) says
A chunky Hawke's Bay red with an easy-drinking appeal and lots of flavour. One of the best Ngatarawa Stables reds yet, the 1999 vintage is a smooth, full-flavoured wine, blended from Cabernet Sauvignon (84 per cent), Merlot (10 per cent) and Cabernet Franc (6 per cent), oak-aged for a year. The colour is full; the palate mouthfilling, with very good depth of blackcurrant and spice, slightly green-edged flavour. An elegant wine with some complexity, it's quite forward and already attractive.
