Cape Mentelle has some very expensive, but very effective, grape sorting equipment, and this may be part of the reason for the purity and the singularity of this beautiful cabernet. It's all there, all laid out for you, blackcurrant/cassis fruit, spicy/earthy undertones and perfectly ripened tannins standing guard over the fruit. The oak is subtle, but has been carefully orchestrated. Drink to: 2051; Price: $98.00; Alcohol: 14%; Rating: 98 Points; Best of the Best Cabernets & Special Value Star; James Halliday Wine Companion

This is the epitome of elegance: a medium- to full-bodied cabernet which is already superb drinking. It’s fascinatingly detailed, with red cherry, raspberry and vanilla aromas leading, and has great intensity and palate line. Lovely now and will richly reward cellaring. Rating: 97 Points; Gourmet Traveller Wine

There is a lot to like in this refined and powerful 2016 vintage. Deep blackcurrant, plum and earthy aromas, as well as leaves, redcurrants, cherries and blueberries. The palate has beautifully complete tannins that roll effortlessly along smooth, elegant lines. Fruit is impeccably fresh. This is packed with aromas of red darker berries. Some warm and spicy oak to close. Drink or hold. Rating: 96 Points & Top 100 Australian Wines; James Suckling

Medium to deep red colour with a trace of purple, while the bouquet reflects vanilla and red cherry, raspberry fruit aromas, which are beginning to mellow. The wine is medium-bodied and elegantly-crafted. A really attractive wine to drink now - and remarkably complex and fascinating already, although I'm sure it will richly reward cellaring. Great intensity and palate line. It's the epitome of elegance. Drink: 2019 to 2039; Price: $98.00; Alcohol: 14%; Rating: 97 Points; Huon Hooke; The Real Review
