Top 7 Cabernets Tasted 10/13

4. Thelema Cabernet Sauvignon Stellenbosch the Mint (2008)

« Prev Next » 4 of 7
Previously available for $41.79
Super herbal and even vegetal though sweet on the nose, sweet green peas layered under tarragon and dried thyme with lovely spicy cumin and coriander top notes. Broad and almost plush on the palate with softened tannins and integrated acids making this very easy to drink. there’s plenty of black currant fruit up front and some plummy, chocolaty fruit flavors as well all leading to a clean, fresh and precise finish. Easy to drink and full of red cherry and red currant fruit with an elegant quality to it but after the nose this comes off as a touch simple on the palate. Finishes with an almost raspberry freshness to the fruit. Delightful to drink. 91pts

  • 1347763Keith Rector The only thing I agree with in the article is that you don't have to buy $30 or much less $40 Cabernets to get great wines. That price range only fits a very small group of wine buyers. Search out the $20 - $25 Napa Cabs that are not only great, but scores of 90+ pts. *Conn Creek Napa Cab. $17.99 *Franciscan Napa Cab. $17.99 *Simi Alex. V. Cab. $17.99 These are just a few of the outstanding wine specials I am buying now at my favorite Wine Store. Search & you will find.
