Mitolo

Vibrant brick red colour with purple hues. Nose shows Hints of nutmeg, crushed leaves and tar with lifted brambly fruit and cloves. Blackcurrant and cassis notes add freshness with the Amarone component adding chocolate and espresso characters. Rich and full-bodied palate, however, maintains a firm structure. Long chain tannin rounds out the palate, providing an elegant wine that tastes of dark berry fruits intermingled with spice and cedar.

Wine Advocate

The 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon "Jester" includes 20% dried grapes in the style of Amarone. Purple-colored, it has a fragrant bouquet of black fruits, tar, and violets. This leads to a smooth-textured, layered, dense wine with enough structure to evolve for 4-6 years. It has a long, pure finish and can be enjoyed over the next 15-20 years. It is a superb value in Cabernet Sauvignon. Mitolo, which began operations in 1999, is a partnership of the Mitolo family and winemaker Ben Glaetzer. The focus is on McLaren Vale fruit from Willunga, the most southern part of the district. All of the wines below are from the 2006 vintage which Glaetzer characterizes as "?a mild growing season with no problems. It ranks with 2002 as my favorite vintage".

Drink 2011 - 2027

Score: 92. —Jay Miller, October 2007.

Wine Spectator

Smooth and velvety, with distinctive cherry and raspberry flavors shaded with cedar and herb notes on the edges, lingering well. Drink now through 2012. 5,000 cases imported.

Score: 89. —Harvey Steiman, February 29, 2008.

Wine Enthusiast

Consulting winemaker Ben Glaetzer has fashioned a reasonably full-bodied Cab for the Mitolo family, one that combines some superripe, verging on raisined, elements with hints of tobacco and herbs. Mint, cassis and chocolate round out the palate, finishing softly tannic. Drink now-2010.

Score: 87. —Joe Czerwinski, February 01, 2008.
