Leeuwin Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Margaret River 2005
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 KinokuniyaAdd winemaker's notes

External Reviews for Leeuwin Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Margaret River
Wine Advocate ReviewThe outstanding 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon Art Series boasts spicy, subtle French oak, cedar, spice box, black currant aromas and flavors gently touched by licorice and herbs. This attractive, medium-bodied Cabernet exhibits layers of richness, a graceful, restrained personality, decent acidity, noticeable but sweet tannin, and a long finish. Enjoy this beauty over the next decade. Drink 2005 - 2015.
This is a classic Cabernet Sauvignon showing all the lovely fruit flavours of black berries, cassis, redcurrants and plums, complemented by selected French Oak to achieve complete integration of flavours. A great palate. A blend of ripe berry flavours with long fine grained tannins and integrated oak that are all in harmony. The velvety palate has great length and lingers with an elegance that marks this as a truly excellent vintage.
The taste has mouth filling rich fruit; again berries and currants carrying through with vibrance and superb extension. The finish has the finest grain of tannins, velvety with the wood and fruit extracts beautifully matched and textured.
