Description

The Menzies is one of the most revered Cabernet labels in Australia, the 2013 a faithful expression of Yalumba's red sandy loam 'terra rossa' soils over Coonawarra's famous limestone. A rich and velvety style of Cabernet, it's very youthful and concentrated upon release in 2016 but will come into its own from 2018 onwards, building complexity and depth. Menzies is of a quality level that it could fairly be sold for circa twice its modest asking price. Cellar 10-15 years.

Smells

Pure cassis, leather and tobacco, with mint, dark chocolate and florals.

Tastes

Concentrated and velvety, it's a complete expression of Cabernet though boisterous in its youth (perfect for those who like big Aussie Reds). If you're patient though, the beauty of the Coonawarra Cabernet will prevail, evolving this wine into the multi-dimensional, harmonious and delicious red we know and love. Enjoy between now and 2030.
