Leeuwin Estate Art Series Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon

The evolution of LEASCS is complete, and 2009 confirms that the polished refinement of recent vintages was no fluke. Impressive concentration of blackcurrant and black cherry fruit is presented in a style of crunchy vibrancy, lifted violet fragrance and savoury black olive complexity. French oak contributes dark chocolate and well balanced tannins, already well integrated and approachable, yet with the confidence to mature for another decade. A cabernet of impressive line and persistence. $52 at The Tasting Room.
