Leeuwin Estate Art Series Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Margaret River, Western Australia   |    750ml   |    13.5%
Long considered one of the shining lights of the Margaret River regions, the overall quality of wine being produced at Leeuwin Estate is at a seemingly all time high. This 2015 Leeuwin Estate Art Series Cabernet Sauvignon is another top-line example of Margaret River Cabernet, displaying vibrant fruit flavours of cherry, blackcurrant along with some bay leaf, anise and roast coffee. A wine of immense quality and character, worthy of a place in any cellar.

"The Horgan family, who founded Leeuwin Estate in 1974, are famous for not doing anything by halves. Their Art Series wines represent some of the finest of Margaret River and this is not only outstanding, it offers very decent value when compared with its rivals from Bordeaux. It is a classic Western Australian cabernet with dark currant and berry flavours front and centre of both nose and palate with some tobacco leaf notes and an intense core. There is 97% cabernet and 3% malbec. A wine of style and substance. History suggests this well cellar brilliantly. $70"- Winsor Dobbin, winsorschoice.blogspot.com.

"... a sleek, red-fruited, beauty. It is already in liquid velvet mode with smooth, plummy Cabernet working its magic in the glass. This vintage tastes like they have uprooted the Cabernet vines and dropped them into the Chardonnay vineyards for one vintage only! It is so silky and tempting and this is another wine which echoes the beauty found on its stunning label designed by Helen Eager."- Matthew Jukes, Matthew Jukes 100 Best Australian Wines 2019/20.

Tasting Notes: Blackcurrants, cherries, dried cranberries and Satsuma plums feature on the nose at the forefront. Bay leaf, cinnamon, cardamon, cedar and clove combine with heightened lavender notes and hints of fresh tobacco. The palate is fine with a mineral thread. It is elegant and delicately layered. Blackcurrant and cherries feature again with a subtle cassis edge. The mid palate has supple flesh with cocoa, coffee bean and cassia leading to a graphite line and powdery tannins.
