WS 91 WA 90 Pts - According to Wine Spectator - "Pure and focused, this red is medium-weight and expressive, offering layers of beautifully formed currant fruit shaded with hints of mint, rosemary and white chocolate. Finishes with intensity. Drink now through 2019."
According to Wine Advocate - "Medium-deep garnet-purple in color, the 2011 The Cigar Cabernet Sauvignon offers aromas of blackberries, black cherries and cassis with an undercurrent of fresh mint, cinnamon stick and dried herbs. Medium-bodied with just enough youthful, expressive flavor framed with lively acid and a medium-level of chewy tannins, it is finishing with a slight herbal lift. Approachable now, and can drink to 2020+."
Tasting Notes - "This wine shows an intense complex bouquet of cherries and dark chocolate. There is lavender perfume and a touch of dried sage. The palate is typical of Menzies "The Cigar" wines, opening with a burst of plush ripe fruit reminiscent of mulberry compote. These fruit characters build the wine in the mid palate where they are met with a complex hint of ironstone. The 2011 "The Cigar" offers great length and the wine finishes with fruit and fine emery tannins." 13.5% ABV.
