    It's hard to for me to find a wine that I really love more than Xanadu Cabernet for Margaret River, Western Australia. Margaret River is one of the world's greatest sites for world-class Cabernet, and in my opinion, is the best in the world for Cabernet value. With a climate strikingly similar to Napa Valley, Robert Mondavi pioneered this region in the early 70s, helping producers like Leeuwin Estate craft bold, rich, and fruit-forward Cabernet. Xanadu was purchased by Rathbone wine group in 2005, who immediately undertook a decade long process to restoring this exceptional estate. Their investments paid off when the 2016 Xanadu Cabernet won Australia's Jimmy Watson Trophy, the most prestigious award in Australian wine. Having tasted both wines, the 2018 is right on par with the 2016. Big, bold, and black fruited with black cassis, dark cherry and graphite notes, the power of this wine is driven entirely by the fruit profile, but held in a balanced frame. The peppermint character you find in most Margaret River Cabernet is turned down here, and adds the slightest accent to the aroma profile, as are the tannins, which are buttery smooth, and give the wine structure without even a hint of bitterness. Having opened it for a New York Strip Steak, the pairing reaffirmed how excellent the quality that Xanadu has achieved year-in-year out, and how exceptional this wine is for the price.
