The Color is deep with a dense center. The nose has inviting aromas of classical Barossa Cabernet blackcurrant, dark chocolate and cedar box. The palate has a defined Cabernet cassis flavor, a touch of
chocolate and vanilla, and shows a superb integration of oak and fruit.
"Has retained good hue and depth; skilled winemaking, the primary ferment finished in barrel, then maturation for 18 months in French oak hogsheads has resulted in a fine, cedary bouquet, the palate with elegant blackcurrant fruit, cedar nuances, and a very long finish amplified by precisely the amount of savoury tannins cabernet should have. Cabernet Sauvignon."

"Full bodied and richly tannic, Lehmann's 2006 Mentor is dark, chocolaty and intense, with further nuances of cassis and cigar box. The finish is chewy and juicy, simultaneously drying and mouthwatering. Drink 2015–2023."
"Deep ruby. Cassis, cherry-vanilla and pipe tobacco on the pungent nose. Ripe, fleshy and expansive, with very good depth and sweetness to its dark fruit flavors. Dusty tannins add shape to the long, smoky finish, which features vanillin oak and spice qualities."
