Leeuwin Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Margaret River 2002

Winemaker's Notes:

2002 Art Series Cabernet Sauvignon Winemaker's Tasting Notes The colour is medium ruby red with violet tints. A complex, well integrated wine exhibiting the classic Cabernet flavours of cassis and blackcurrants intermingling with blackberries and chocolate. The palate shows sweet rich blackcurrants and blackberry flavours and is complemented by integrated French oak and mouth-filling fine tannins. A wine of medium weight that will continue to improve in the medium term. Source: http://www.leeuwinestate.com.au/index.php?page=141

After an extensive search in 1972 to identify the most suitable Australian area for the production of premium varietal wines, Robert Mondavi singled out a small plot of land in the Margaret River region. At the time a cattle farm, Leeuwin Estate evolved under the direction of owners Denis and Tricia Horgan, with Mondavi acting as consultant and mentor. The Estate was thrust into the international spotlight when Decanter magazine awarded their highest recommendation to the 1980 Art Series Chardonnay. Now under the direction of two generations of the founding family, the Estate is recognized as one of Australia’s leading wine producers and wine tourism pioneers. Featured three times in the prestigious category of “International Winery of the Year” by U.S. Wine & Spirits magazine, Leeuwin Estate wines nconsistently rank alongside the world’s finest.

Very pleasant and easy drinking after an hour and a half in the decanter. Plenty of fruit and lots of oaky tones, but not a lot of real complexity. Lisa's comment "very nice, but not as good as the 2000" Cost Yen 4,880 from Kinokuniya
