Vinous 91 points - (a 68/22/10 blend): Opaque ruby. Potent spice- and smoke-accented dark berries and cherry pit on the fragrant nose. Chewy and expansive, offering gently sweet blackcurrant and floral pastille flavors and suggestions of vanilla and mocha. Dusty tannins give structure and grip to the long, penetrating finish, which leaves smoky minerals and licorice behind.  (Jul 2014)

Wine Spectator 91 points - Dark and brooding, with tarry, licorice-accented black fruit character. Plum and herb notes emerge from the maelstrom on the finish. Comes together pleasantly on successive sips. Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz and Malbec. Best from 2015 through 2019.H.S. (May 14 2014)

Wine maker notes
Peter Lehmann mentored countless people over his 50-year career, and this wine is named in his honour. Great Barossa Cabernet Sauvignon has layers of texture and flavour. By drawing fruit from a number of Barossa sub-regions - each with their own unique terroir - Mentor Cabernet captures immense varietal definition with added complexity of old vine, low-yielding fruit matured in 100% French oak barrels. Mentor is made as the best expression of Barossa Cabernet of vintage, with addition of small portions of complementary varieties in certain years. Mentor growers keep yields low and produce fruit that displays classic lifted cassis and violet characters.
