Mitchell Wines Sevenhill Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2009


I'm not sure what I like better here - the fruit purity or the fact it's a 2009 looking so youthful.

Divine. Seriously. One whiff and you know you're on a winner. Barely a hair out of place, the welcome mat to pleasure country is rolled out.

Charming medium bodied fruit has depth but it's not heavy enough to bowl you over. Delicate savoury appeal peels back patiently waiting its turn to shine. Tannins melt into the fruit as all elements deliver as one in unison. There's breath and width and seductive length. Incredible value for an eight year old wine. Walk over broken glass for this - exceptional value.

Drinking superbly now but will cellar well beyond a decade in the right hands.
