Leeuwin Estate Art Series Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon

With fragrant rose petal perfume over a crunchy core of black- and redcurrant fruit, this is a honed and tangy release with a refreshing grace and elegance unusual in this warm season. It displays more prominent acidity and finer tannins than many, too, making for an elegant and enduring style. Oak is well balanced and will appreciate time to fully integrate. A great Art Series of magnificent persistence and effortless poise. Not yet released. $55 at WineStar (2009).
