Peter Lehmann "Mentor" Cabernet Sauvignon 2008
All elements of the wine have come together famously. Further to the point, another example of a wine from the Barossa demonstrating that Shiraz is not the only variety made very well there.
I loved the nose. A heavenly whiff of ripened dark fruits, some violets, cedary oak and even a touch of spice. I just kept coming back to it. The wine was delicious! Full with generous flavours of chocolate, blackcurrants, and the cedar and spice from the nose appeared to be humming right through it. Yum!
The finish was super long, fine and moreish. All flavours coated the palate nicely and you couldn't help but smile after each sip. For $38, this is a bargain.
This vintage is available in most good retailers and is well worth you seeking it out.
