Cape Mentelle Cabernet Sauvignon
The first notes on the nose are enticing and herbal, reminiscent of bay leaf and dry thyme. The nose then opens to intense ripe cassis, black pepper, smoke and cocoa with hints of fresh rolled tobacco leaves. Then, to taste, the bright red attack explodes with red currants and fresh cassis, followed by touches of cloves and juniper berry. A graphite, mineral backbone leads to a still fresh finish supported by structural fine and savoury tannins.
