The cabernet merlot blend takes inspiration from the classic red wines of Bordeaux. Cape Mentelle has developed an international reputation for long lived cabernet and this blend seeks to capture the quality of varieties that, when blended with small amounts of petit verdot, cabernet franc and malbec, create a well rounded, full and rich style. Appearance: Dark Cherry. Nose: Lifted blackcurrants with mocha, dried tobacco leaf and hints of lavender lying underneath. Palate: A concentrated palate led by fresh currants and ripe cherries. Generous texture and fruit weight are complemented by savoury oak, creating a long, even palate with fine delicate tannins. Food Pairing: Indian spiced lamb rack. Cellaring: Drink now to 2017. Grape: 49% Cabernet Sauvignon, 42% Merlot, 4% Petit Verdot, 3% Cabernet Franc and 2% Malbec.
