Mitolo Jester Cabernet Sauvignon 2008
The grapes come from the Willunga district of McLaren Vale, where the heavy grey loam soils over sandstone, intermixed with black Biscay clay, combined with the maritime climate, contribute to an even ripening period and the development of rich fruit flavours and ripe tannins. Yield is around 4 tons an acre.
External Reviews for Mitolo Jester Cabernet Sauvignon
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+.
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.
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.
