Cabernet Sauvignon’s spiritual home, and perhaps its true origin, is in Bordeaux, where it tends to be blended with other varieties such as Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Australian Cab Savs are commonly made as single varietal wines, with Coonawarra and Margaret River heading most wine lovers’ lists of Cabernet regions.
Bright cherry red in colour with a fruit forward nose. On the palate rich flavours of raspberry, blackberry and plum are laced with hints of spice and backed by smooth tannins. A flavoursome wine of good structure and balance.
Item Code: ITM4661
A rich and inviting wine filled with bright red berry flavours. The tannins are approachable whilst lending length and regional structure. There is an underlying level of spice to the wine that adds complexity.
Item Code: ITM6050
Lifted fruit aromas leap from the glass, and progress onto a mouth-filling palate of juicy plum and spicy oak. The wine is backed by fine tannins that provides excellent balance and leads to a persistent finish.
Item Code: ITM5242
A powerful and intense red with generous blackcurrant and redcurrant fruit flavours. Fine tannins and cool acidity complete a harmonious wine that is excellent now but will get better with careful cellaring to 2024.

"This is one of the best wines that Deep Woods Estate makes and the one that I cellar for special occasions - and also drink it on a Tuesday with pizza." Julian Langworthy, Chief Winemaker
Item Code: ITM15337
“A cabernet sauvignon, merlot, malbec, cabernet franc, petit verdot blend, indirectly nodding to Bordeaux, part of the Aquitaine region. This oozes class from every pore, every inch along the palate having something to contribute to this lovely wine. Blackcurrant/cassis, ripe, full tannins, classy oak (and integration) are all cause for joy.” Halliday Wine Companion
Item Code: ITM15407
Aromas of violets and glazed cherries are supported by hints of cedar, cassis and forest floor. The palate enters with fine-grained tannins and is followed by notes of bright raspberries and mulberries. A wonderful expression of Margaret River Cabernet from an exceptional vintage.
Item Code: ITM4836
Medium bodied and tightly wound with fine layers of oak overlaying dark and ripe Cabernet fruits. It is clearly varietal with finely polished, persistent tannins and savoury fruit sweetness on the finish. A classical Margaret River Cabernet that will reward cellaring.
Item Code: ITM7612
"Silken mouthfeel. Good fruit power. Ultra-fine tannin and impressive length. It’s not a big or burly cabernet but it impresses from the outset, and for all the right reasons. It’s creamy, chocolatey, curranty and varietal, its more herbal side tucked neatly within. Pure cabernet." Campbell Mattinson
Item Code: ITM17702
“A powerfully built cabernet of outstanding potential. A great wine, and possibly the best yet from Cape Mentelle.” Huon Hooke
