96 Points - Campbell Mattinson
Long considered one of the shining lights of the Margaret River wine region, the overall quality of wine produced at Leeuwin Estate is at a seemingly all-time high. While their Chardonnay rightfully receives most the headlines, Leeuwin Estate's Art Series Cabernet Sauvignon is consistently one of the region's finest examples.
The 2019 Leeuwin Estate Art Series Cabernet Sauvignon is another top-line example of Margaret River Cabernet, displaying vibrant fruit flavours blueberries, blackcurrant, dark cherries along with some bay leaf, anise and roast coffee. A wine of immense quality and character, worthy of a place in any cellar.
“96 Points. 96% cabernet sauvignon, 4% malbec. Gosh this is good. This is the region and the variety and the estate all committing to the task and combining to exemplary effect. Such structure, such fruit, such balance and such impact. Blackcurrant and pencils, dark chocolate and herbs, some eucalypt lift and even some florals. Tannin, my word, it’s beautifully formed, a keel with wings, a determinant. I kept tasting this wine and it kept telling me things. Leeuwin Estate cabernet is now right up there with the best. 13.5% alc. $96. Screwcap. Drink: 2028 - 2040+”- Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front.
"95 Points. Just as the Art Series Chardonnay has Block 20 as its heart, the Art Series Cabernet relies on Block 8. Go back to the early days and it is fair to say the Cabernet struggled to garner the accolades which were showered upon the Chardonnay. No longer. This is now (another) jewel in their crown. Dark maroon hue. The aromas include black fruits, tobacco leaves, chocolate, coffee beans, blackberries, cassis, delicatessen meats and leather. Utterly alluring and this persists on the palate with mouthpuckering tannins on a very long finish. The oak is perfectly melded. This has at least ten to twelve years ahead of it and the score should go higher, perhaps considerably higher, over that period. So much to like here – this sits comfortably with the top examples from the region. $89. Drink: 2023 - 2035"- Ken Gargett, winepilot.com.
