Mitolo Cabernet Sauvignon Jester 2014

External Review:

The color is deep red with a dense black center, and the nose gives tantalising aromas of chocolate, blackcurrants, with hints of nutmeg, cloves and star anise. It is a beautifully rich Cabernet with superb depth of seamless fruit.

Very dark, deep garnet color. If not for the red ring showing around the top edge when it sits in the glass you could almost swear it's pitch black. Black cherry, blackberry and a hint of vanilla on the nose. Big cherry bomb on the palate and a ton of vanilla. There's also a hint of "sweetness" on the palate that I'm sure comes from the winemaking method of using 20% dried grapes. Some pepper and clove on the finish. Finish lingers for quite some time. Tannins are there but do not show the grip I'm used to in a cab (I drink more Cali cabs than Aussie) However, considering that this is a different style and not a traditional cab, it's quite a nice and different experience. Good stuff. 4.0 glass rating.

really nice example of a different category of cabernet. whereas most cabs are savory, this one tends more towards a dessert theme with a delicate blend of rich blackberry, clove, vanilla, and even some chocolate notes.

85 points: Brought to a party. Decanted for 3 hours prior. From what I remember, initially the wine was too cold (sitting in the car). It had a strong alcohol bite in the beginning and some tart fruits. I let it sit for a while to get near room temp. I am so glad I did. Now, once at room temp, it was much more enjoyable. Some nice black fruits on the first taste. The alcohol mellowed out and the finish was smooth. Sorry, wish I had better recall of it. I do know that once it got to ideal conditions, it was pretty good.

Deep garnet with a touch of purple in the color, the 2012 Jester Cabernet Sauvignon presents a fragrant nose of warm cassis and mulberries with touches of cedar, pencil lead, dried mint and chocolate. Full-bodied with tons of juicy blackcurrant and minted blackberry flavors, it has a good line of medium level grainy tannins, lively acid and a long finish. Drink it now to 2018.

Smooth, expressive and generous, offering a cascade of ripe black cherry and blackberry, with hints of tarragon and mint around the edges, flowing smoothly into a long finish. Drink now through 2018.

Bright, lush and juicy, Jester Cabernet Sauvignon shows a full bodied palate and mouth filling richness. 20% of the fruit has been handled in the Amarone manner- this technique of drying fruit adds complexity and fullness and produces soft juicy tannins.

Opaque ruby. Youthful, high-pitched aromas of red and dark berries, with a touch of anise. Juicy, palate-staining black raspberry and licorice flavors are enlivened by zesty minerality, picking up a spicy quality with air. Nervy and pure on the long, spicy aftertaste. No excess fat here.

The 2008 Jester “Monarco” Cabernet Sauvignon has a very deep garnet-purple color and intense notes of warm blackberry, prunes, some dark chocolate, kirsch and creme de cassis. The palate is rich and full bodied with plenty of juicy fruit, plus high acidity and a medium level of soft tannins to lend support. The finish is long. Drinking now, it should cellar to 2014+.

Crisp, focused and rich, with mint-accented currant and blackberry flavors that linger on the sharp-edged finish. Drink now through 2012.
