Cape Mentelle 2017 Shiraz-Cabernet Sauvignon (Margaret River)
Notes of plum, currant and vanillin-cola oak are backed by chewy tannins and somewhat forced acidity. A little less winemaking and a little more terroirs expression would be welcome here. Christina Pickard

All tastings reported in the Buying Guide are performed blind. Typically, products are tasted in peer-group flights of from 5-8 samples. Reviewers may know general information about a flight to provide context—vintage, variety or appellation—but never the producer or retail price of any given selection. When possible, products considered flawed or uncustomary are retasted.
