91 Points "…has developed beautifully in the bottle, its flavours of dark chocolate, mint, blackcurrant and burnt toast now offering heaps to sink your teeth into…it’s an excellent wine." Big Red Wine Book 2009/2010, Campbell Mattinson & Gary Walsh (Australia), May 2009
4 Stars "Theres something distinctive about the best Margaret River cabernet - a pronounced cassis/blackcurrant flavour and aroma. Capel Vales has this along with plum and liquorice on the palate. It finishes dry and firm…" Canberra Times, Fergus McGhie (Australia), 04 Mar 09
Recommended "Red fruits merge with elements of mint and leaf to produce an attractive young nose. The palate is quite approachable. Enjoy now." Winewise (Australia), February 2009
Winery Tasting Notes
Margaret River Cabernet and Merlot were fermented in individual batches before ageing in French oak. It was then assembled to achieve maximal complexity and aromas with the small addition of petit verdot. The complex lifted aromatics follow to a rich fleshy palate with good length and soft tannin finish.
