Leeuwin Estate Art Series Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon
I have been a great admirer of the evolution toward refinement of Leeuwin Estate Art Series Margaret River Cabernet over the past five years, and 2010 is the pinnacle, the greatest red wine I have yet tasted from this revered estate. Sourced from vines 34 years of age and matured in 50% new French oak, this is a Margaret River cabernet of depth and definition, within an effortlessly medium-bodied frame. Great density of dark blackcurrant fruit and hints of bay leaf savouriness open into violet perfume. It’s seamless and crafted, with finely textural yet firmly confident tannins interlacing with vibrant acid, drawing the finish out long, bright and determined. September 2014 release. $55 at WineStar (2009).
