92 Points Robert Parker
The seriously-endowed 1996 Mentor is a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 10% Shiraz, and 10% Malbec. An opaque purple color is accompanied by complex aromas of damp earth, cedarwood, mint, plum liqueur, licorice, black currants, and new oak. Full-bodied, deep, and chewy, with moderate tannin and excellent concentration as well as body, it will drink well for 10-15 years.
