96 Points - Erin Larkin | RRP $38
Castelli Estate has been a long-time favourite winery of ours that's now firmly established itself as a bona fide star of Western Australian wine. The 2018 Castelli Cabernet Sauvignon is another impressive example of Cabernet from the Frankland River region of WA; an area increasingly recognised as home to some exceptional red wines.
An aromatic and beautifully structured Cabernet, this is medium-bodied with layers of dark chocolate, sweet blackberries, cassis and liquorice flavours. The fine, supple tannins are in perfect harmony with the quality fruit and carefully measured oak. A Frankland River Cabernet with a long life ahead of it, this offers high quality drinking and superb value at this discounted price.
"96 Points. Hooley dooley. Castelli seem to be in the habit of producing great wines. No complaints from us, the drinkers. This is a harmonious, powerful and exciting rendition, not only of cabernet sauvignon, but of the Frankland River regional characteristics of the grape. Gravel, ferrous, salted cassis. Licorice. It's a cracker. Supple and dense at once. This will age, too. Buy it and drink it now or when your newborn turns 15. $38. 14.7% alc. Drink by 2035. Screwcap." - Erin Larkin, winecompanion.com.au.
