2014 Cape Mentelle Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon
A beautiful Cabernet crafted from a single vineyard site from the mature, low yielding vines of the Cape Mentelle Estate Vineyard. This stunning Cabernet has the complexity, intensity and elegance to benefit from extended cellaring.
The attack is delicate and focused but the palate packs a lot of muscle for its age. Retaining some typical dry bay leaf and tobacco notes, the wine displays serious black and red cherry fruit, jammed and caramelized, complemented by focused tannins upfront that generously unravel into warm supple cocoa beans and mocha notes. The noble oak supports the structure all the way to the long liquoricy finish that invites a second sip.
