"Sourced from dry, stony soils in Perdriel, this is a pretty punchy, serious Cabernet Sauvignon with the structure and balance that are a feature of Roberto de la Mota’s wines. Black fig and blackcurrant fruit flavours are framed by fine tannins and sweet oak. 2018-24"

"Aromas of currants, blackberries and mint follow through to a full body that's chewy and rich with a long and flavorful finish. Shows structure. Give it two or three years to soften."

"(aged for 12 months in French oak, one-third new): Bright medium ruby. Musky, initially reticent aromas of dark raspberry, currant and tobacco opened nicely with air. Plush and very concentrated, conveying an impression of roasted berries but also sound acidity and a firm spine of dusty tannins. This seamless, minerally Cabernet is most impressive today on the building back end."

"2015 was an extremely difficult vintage for Cabernet Sauvignon and the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon from Mendel can be considered a success. There is a mix of plum, spice and earth aromas, perhaps a little blurry. The palate shows dusty tannins and a dry finish, slightly austere. 15,000 bottles produced."

"Ripe aromas of cassis, prune and brandied black cherry indicate the concentration on this Cabernet. A palate that doesn't hold back is jammy but a bit heavy. Ripe berry, toast and charred flavors take on a chocolaty note on the finish. This wine is all about full extraction and big fruit. Drink through 2022."
