Strong purple-crimson; a strikingly rich and opulent Coonawarra cabernet with blackcurrant cassis and plum in a full-throated oak coat ripe tannins on the finish. Will absolutely outlive its cork in average Australian...

Strong and stylish. Lots of dark berried curranty fruit and lots of oak to match. But balanced. Cedarwood eucalypt peppercorns and cassis. A mouthful of wine muscuklar and bulky - but nicely tapered through the finish... Strong and stylish. Lots of dark berried curranty fruit and lots of oak to match. But balanced.

Deep garnet colored with a hint of purple in the rim the 2008 The Menzies Cabernet Sauvignon offers aromas of black currant cordial and blackberry preserves with underlying hints of Provence herbs menthol soy black olives tree bark cloves and pencil lead. Medium to full bodied and packed with muscular fruit the flesh is well supported by firm grainy tannins and lively acid finishing long. Drink this one now to 2019+. 91+ -Lisa Perrotti-Brown

Smooth and refined this is rich with cherry smoke and spice flavors that push through a veil of scratchy tannins and linger on the finish. Best from 2014 through 2018. -HS
