Leeuwin Estate Art Series Cabernet Sauvignon 2013
A magnificent and powerful nose of blackcurrant, blackberry, cedar and cigar box, with background nuances of violet, cardamom, anise and bay leaf. Really complex. The palate shows similar power and weight with classic austere Bordeaux structure. Added to the black fruits, we find cocoa and coffee beans and chalky gravelly (Margaret River) tannins. An excellent vintage from Leeuwin Estate. Fantastic now, will be at its best with 10-20 years bottle age. – Ian Cook, FWC.
