Leeuwin Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Margaret River Art Series 2011

Member Review by cabwhore:

This wine is possibly one of the best wines that I have ever enjoyed. From two minutes after opening this, it was amazing! Caught vanilla right off the bat with a "little" hint of oak, but becuase this wine is so well made, it works just fine. I also got a smokey taste, almost like liquid smoke. This was very smooth and creamy and I loved it.

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.

Lots of dark fruit. Oak well integrated. Enjoyable, but did not change my world.

86% cabernet sauvignon, 14% malbec. On the nose, enticing and complex aromas develop, offering graphite and stone, mixed with notes of beef marinade, fresh earth and sandalwood, bringing to mind Bordeaux. Reinforcing that impression is the elegantly... Chuck Hayward. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from Western Australia in Australia. 2005 Leeuwin Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Art Series 750ml

Ruby-red color. Opaque ruby. Deep cassis and boysenberry aromas are brightened by zesty minerals and complicated by cured tobacco, licorice and baking spices. Sappy dark berry flavors are firmed by youthful tannins and pick up bitter chocolate and li... Stephen Tanzer's IWC.
