*No. 1 of 38 ranked 2013 Margaret River Cabernets* The colour is medium red with both brick-red and purple tints. The bouquet has sandalwood, briar, mint and leaf notes. The palate is elegantly weighted and sinewy, with a touch of leanness. The tannins are domineering and the finish chewy and grippy. This needs more time. Two days later the wine is transformed. The bouquet is very detailed and subtly complex, not super-ripe but fragrant and lovely, with hints of cedar, violets and dried flowers. The palate is now deliciously drinkable, elegant and nuanced soft and finely textured. Great, great line and length, but not big or imposing. A really tasty Cabernet. (HH - Real Review)
A bold and meaty wine that has a very fresh, fragrant and lively style that makes for exciting tasting. There are some very smooth, mellow and nicely ripe rich fruits on offer - no to mention custard spices, mocha oak and dark chocolate. It's all very complex and alluring. The palate has supple, soft and ripe mulberries, which go hand in hand with plum flavors, blueberry pie, some pastry-like moments and a fluffy, approachable tannin texture. Drinking well now, this has a long window of enjoyment ahead - up to two decades. Brilliant!
A seamless parade of varietal and regional flavour. Gone is the brawn of yesteryear; this holds finesse and length closest to its chest. Blackcurrant, cedar wood, dust, undergrowth and gravel/eucalypt characters build a wealth of succulent momentum before lingering on through the finish. Integration of tannin the final quality flourish.
