Art Series Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Art Series Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

2017 Cabernet Sauvignon

Margaret River, WA

Full of energy and vitality with elegant shape and frame, again black and blue fruits dominate the palate. There is dimension, drive, and penetration to the finish. Specifically, there are olive notes, combined with dried thyme, cedar and quartz-like minerality that weaves through to powdery graphite tannins.

From $79.00 per bottle

    Description

    Dense and concentrated nose with blackcurrants, blueberries and boysenberries. A delicate fragrant lift of violets, lavender offer beautiful symmetry and balance. Laced beneath complex spices of cumin, clove, black cardamom and star anise, surrounded by an oceanic nuance throughout.

    "Brilliantly deep, brooding red/purple colour. The bouquet is fresh and vibrant, with loads of cassis, violet and blackberry varietal fruit, expertly infused with cedary oak notes. The wine is very intense and powerful, full-bodied and well structured, the cassis flavours rocketing through on the very extended finish and aftertaste. A majestic cabernet."

    “2% of Malbec is included in this cracking Margaret River Cabernet. 22 months in total in a mix of barrels and barriques. There has never been any doubt over the stunning quality of the Art Series Chardonnay, but it has taken longer for this wine to reach its current stratospheric levels. Indeed, the Leeuwin reds are one of the big improvers in the region over recent decades. Deep purples here. Black fruits dominate with plums and mulberries. Spices, dry herbs and some gravelly notes. A wine that is concentrated and with deceptive grip, but a wine that is still exhibiting elegance. The balance between fine acidity, silky tannins and impressive length is knife-edge. This is a quality Margaret River Cabernet.”

    “A later vintage, which required a little courage to wait until the fruit hit that perfect ripeness. This one has emerged really well. It’s a medium-bodied and stylish cabernet. Has a leafy, floral, red berry and slightly brick-dust character to complement. The palate is so seamlessly woven with fine, chalky tannins and integrated oak working harmoniously. Bright with a high-energy finish.”

    “It’s a good wine, it’s obvious that it is, but just how good? For starters it needs to be decanted; it needs air. I thought at first that this wine was just a bit too medium-bodied; it just didn’t seem to quite have the requisite power. But as it breather the finish kept inching out and extending. It has a cool flowing feel to it, in that alpine herb and mint notes drift through ripe curranty fruit, but it also feels balanced, ripe and even-handed. That said, everything about this wine is focussed on the finish, and on excelling there. By the time I’d sent an hour or two with it the word impeccable has passed my lips. It grows on you as it grows in the glass.”
