Howard Park Margaret River Miamup Cabernet Sauvignon

An age-worthy cabernet of textbook precision is a rare find at this price. Straight cabernet fruit from Wilyabrup and northern Margaret River presents accurate aromas of leaf, tomato bush, redcurrants and cedar. The palate is built around fine-grained, graphite, unashamedly firmly-textured tannins that envelop blackcurrant and capsicum fruit of impressive persistence, supported by impeccably gauged high cocoa dark chocolate oak. $23 at Wood Street Wines and Nicks.
