Art Series Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

Tropical fruit, white grapefruit, flowers, sea spray, baking spices, Chantilly cream, green peppercorns, and hints of chalky minerals. Lengthy, smooth finish. Perhaps more aromatic with less concentrated fruit than the 2017. Australia once again showing its strength for super complex, outstanding Chardonnay without the Napa or Burgundy prices.

Worth noting critics rating this 94-98 pts. With the increased aromatics, I prefer it ever slightly to the 2017.

Cape Mentelle

Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon 2007

My last 2007 Mentelle Cabernet - last of the old white label. Very dense in colour - a dark Ruby. Cassis and blackcurrant. See previous Delectable notes. Not overly herbal like most Margaret Cabernets. Cedar and black olive notes as well. Amazing vitality and concentration for 16 years - in hindsight could have left it for longer. A ripe powerful Cabernet - more like a South Australian Cabernet in structure and fruit ripeness. An excellent vintage in Marg River which hardly ever has a bad one…..2006 comes to mind. Wish I had consumed this when 20 years of age. PS. Nick Stock said one of the greatest Cape Mentelles of all time. Only 800 cases made. — a month ago

Certainly was thanks David. Every year Cape Mentelle has an International Cabernet tasting. In 2010 at the 2007 vintage tasting, the Marg River trio of Woodlands, Mentelle and Moss Wood had more consensus tasting points than Ch Margaux and Ch Leoville Las Cases. Admittedly 2007 not a great vintage in Bordeaux.

@Bob McDonald, visited Cape Mentelle once, 29 years ago, we flew from NorCal to Perth with my 6-month-old son, and spent a few days in Margaret River, hoping to get back soon. We probably tasted 1990/1/2 wines there at that time?

I’m sure they would have been good on your previous visit. They have a great site and back then a talented wine maker in David Hohnen who won 3 consecutive Jimmy Watson trophies back then.
