The sixth edition of Langton's Classification of Australian Wines saw Cape Mentelle Cabernet Sauvignon move from 'Excellent' to 'Outstanding', ranking it amongst 52 other benchmark quality Australian Wines: "The classic, age-worthy Cape Mentelle Cabernet Sauvignon, with its beautiful fragrance, purity of fruit, structure and vitality, has played a significant part in shaping Margaret River’s premium wine image. After winning the Jimmy Watson Trophy in successive years for the 1982 and 1983 vintages, it became a modern legend inspiring a whole generation of winemakers to succeed in their craft."
James Suckling writes "A bold and meaty wine that has a very strong, fresh fragrant and lively style that makes for exciting tasting. Some very smooth, mellow and nicely ripe rich fruits on offer, custard spices and mocha oak, dark chocolate too; very complex and alluring. The palate has supple, soft and ripe mulberry, cherry and plum fruit flavours, blueberry pie, some pastry like moments and a fluffy, approachable tannin texture. Drinking well now, has a long window of enjoyment ahead, up to two decade. Brilliant. "
