Leeuwin Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Margaret River 2002
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
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
