Leeuwin Estate Art Series Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Seems I’m always reviewing these wines before release, and as a result, have to wait to get a proper bottle image (given the specific art on all of the Art Series wines).

I very much appreciate a wine that feels ‘dense’ but isn’t ‘heavy’. Here’s a fine example. Black fruit, redcurrant, hazelnut and menthol, coffee bean and sweet fragrant herbs and leaf. It’s medium bodied, but dense and well packed, with fine-grained tannin, hazelnut and praline, cool acidity, and a very much offers a ‘classic Cabernet’ experience. It’s long too, and packed with tannin and interest. Excellent. Superb release from Leeuwin.
