From the Margaret River region of South Australia comes the 2013 Leeuwin’s Cabernet Sauvignon that’s loaded with light aromas of blackberries, cherries and raspberries. This medium to full body wine has hints of vanilla and espresso. This is a powerful wine that was aged in 40% new French oak for 12 months and gives just a little oak on the nose. It flowed velvety over the tongue with a very nice finish. 96% Cabernet and 4% Malbec is unlike any of the other Cabs from the Margaret River region. We would suggest to buy a few of these wines and hold them (if you can) for a few more years since this wine is still developing and will only get better!
This twist top surprised me when I opened it since I normally decant before tasting but for some strange reason I wanted a taste. Boy was I blown away by the impact this wine had upon the first sniff in the glass. Powerful but an elegant sense that it was made to be enjoyed now. I give this wine 4 glasses!
You can pick this up at Costco now!
