Marvelous #structure #aromas of #blackberries and #cassis #charred oak. The berry bush in the most subtle and elegant way. Pleasantly surprised by this wine. I believe it has great aging potential. Great now and will be smooth and more complex in the future. — 5 years ago

Cape Mentelle

Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

This is a serious wine but it took a while to reach this decision-2 days of breathing in a closed decanter. 2012 Cape Mentelle Cabernet 2012 (AUD 91); 91% cabernet with drizzles of franc, merlot, verdot. Screwcaps do strange things: in this case tighten the wine up to be un-expressive; was lovely fruit, balanced ripeness and oak fruition; just so simple without tannin dryness opened fresh. On breathing a little oxidation (that word!) teased out the dryness and weight 14.5%; #margaretriver #structure #drinkearly ; clearly sold to drink now, future aging is of interest?? — 6 years ago

Interesting comment Scud , that this wine seems to be made to drink early. This would be a departure from previous years.

Bow and Arrow

Air Guitar Cabernet Franc Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Get crushed out on this non-conformist blend from Portlander @Scott Frank. Bordelaise in blend, but much more Loiresque in style, the Cab Sauv gives great #structure and depth and the Cab Franc a bright lift and a touch of earthy #funk for oh so easy drinking. — 5 years ago
