As one of Margaret River’s ‘founding five’ wineries, Cape Mentelle pioneered many of the region’s renowned wine styles and today is a benchmark for the quality of the region’s wines.

Cape Mentelle has a rich history of exceptional quality and consistency with Cabernet Sauvignon from a pioneering producer in Margaret River in the early 1970's to a benchmark producer today. A single vineyard wine with the style evolving over time, the aim always to define a wine displaying classic varietal character and opulence, strong regional identity and with the structure and fruit intensity to improve with extended cellaring.

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. Rating: 98 Points; Huon Hooke

Blackberry and blueberry aromas with wet earth and bark. Sandalwood undertones. Full body, velvety tannins and a juicy finish. Very agile at the same time. Energy. What a wine for the cellar. Closure: Screwcap; Rating: 96 Points; James Suckling

Boysenberry, raspberry and raisin, chocolate hazelnut, mint, tobacco. Medium to full-bodied, nutty churn of dark chocolate tannin, tobacco and pencil, smooth yet assertive, powering through the finish with a savoury tobacco-laced aftertaste. Strong release. Tannin is a high point. Yes. Tasted: April 2017; Alcohol: 14%; Price: $94; Closure: Screwcap; Drink: 2018-2034+; Rating: 95 Points; Gary Walsh; The Wine Front

One of the state's most famous cabernets. A Slightly more robust expression of the variety than recent vintages. The tannins are grainy with subtle assertiveness. The fruit is ripe and generous. It's a robust structure deep concentration of fruit that extends to a sustained finish. It has the structure to handle extended cellaring. Rating: 94 Points; Ray Jordan; The West Australian Wine Guide

Includes 15% merlot. Another excellent wine with neatly compact flavours and definition. Beautiful tannin structure, the palate silky and refined, the cassis, the oak, the spices all dutifully playing their part. Drink by: 2035; Price: $98.00; Date Tasted: Janr 2017; Alcohol: 14%; Rating: 96 Points; Jane Faulkner; James Halliday Wine Companion
