2014 Cape Mentelle Cabernet Sauvignon
Deep, dark red colour with a good tint of purple, the bouquet likewise deep and mysterious, with traces of coffee grounds, tinged with quality oak: a serious wine all-round. It's full-bodied and very concentrated, profoundly flavoured and structured, with masses of tannin and a terrifically long finish. A powerfully built cabernet of outstanding potential. A great wine, and possibly the best yet from Cape Mentelle.
