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+.
