Cape Mentelle Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Availability: Out of stock

The colour is medium red with both brick-red and purple tints. The bouquet has sandalwood, briar, mint and leaf notes. The palate is elegantly weighted and sinewy, with a touch of leanness. The tannins are domineering and the finish chewy and grippy. This needs more time. Two days later the wine is transformed. The bouquet is very detailed and subtly complex, not super-ripe but fragrant and lovely, with hints of cedar, violets and dried flowers. The palate is now deliciously drinkable, elegant and nuanced soft and finely textured. Great, great line and length, but not big or imposing. A really tasty Cabernet
