Evans & Tate Redbrook Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon

This is a more than respectable price for a Margaret River flagship, and Evans & Tate delivers in deep blackcurrant, black plum and blackberry fruits, framed in savoury complexity of black olives, even hints of coal dust. It retains a lively vibrancy in the midst of dark chocolate oak and impressively firm, fine tannins, promising plenty of potential to develop. It will appreciate some years for fruit and oak to fully integrate. $32 at Wine Box Warehouse.
