    On the nose this super aromatic wine expresses cherry, cranberry, and raspberry notes. On the palate it's a very smooth, velvety, and silky Cab that shows itself to be a medium bodied, well structured wine expressing purple plum, dark chocolate, strawberry, blueberry, and black currant flavors. A soft finish of green peppercorn, and low alcohol (13.5%), allows the fruity characteristics to shine, and easily leaves me longing for more!

    It’s clear to see why the Leeuwin Art Series Cabernet is one of Australia’s greatest Cabernets. Hailing from Margaret River and founded in 1973 with Robert Mondavi consulting, over the last forty years Leeuwin has been at the top of Australia’s bluechip producers, creating phenomenal Cabernet and Chardonnay, year after year. Margaret River was originally selected for wine growing due to remarkably similar conditions to Napa. And when you factor in the quality and price, these wines compete toe-to-toe with some of the best wines you’ll find in the US--at less than half the price. I was a huge fan of the 2013 Art Series Cab, and I loved the more elegant, aromatic 2014. But the 2015 is definitely closer in style to the power and finesse of 2013. Lifting the glass, there’s black cassis, dark cherry, charcoal, and a gorgeous bouquet of baking spices and oak. You can tell right off the bat this is going to be powerful. On the palate, this is mouth coating and rich, full of black fruits and exquisitely balanced with gentle acidic counterpoint. The tannins here are extremely fine, making it a pleasure to drink now and topped off with a finish that just carries and carries. There are few places on the global making new-world style wines of this caliber, and when you look at the value at its price point, I wouldn’t drink anything else.

    One of the classic wines of the Margaret River. Pure Cabernet flavors with very little oak presence on the nose. Herbs and hints of mint in the background. Plums and blackberries on the palate, with bright fruits and a savory profile with some anise spice. The wine has a great palate texture with very smooth tannins and good length on the finish. Despite being ready to drink now I think there is good ageing potential here.This is not a fruit bomb but a subtle example of Cabernet Sauvignon that is not quite French or American, but perhaps uniquely Australian.

    I thought the 2014 vintage was a steal, but the new vintage is a quick favorite of mine. This is high quality cab at a medium tier price point, especially considering our incredible deal at almost a half of prices found elsewhere. Smokey and bright red fruit aromas are prevalent, with more subtle vanilla, herbaceous, and cranberry notes appearing as the wine opens. The taste is full, warm, and lush with notes of red fruit, blackberries, and a noticeable but refined amount of French oak aging. While tannic and structured with an easy balance, the wine finishes long and earthy. At $40 this is a killer deal and shows great aging potential.
