Xanadu Cabernet 2008

Member Review by zufrieden:

Somewhat dumb nose with a bit of menthol and blackcurrant. The mouthfeel is soft, slightly tannic with a mild stemmy finish that is not altogether welcome. Flavours are, however, correct for the variety and the region. Will last a few years more but probably not worth it. Very decent value in a Bordelais style. 86 points.

One of Western Australia's most established wineries, producing quality wines through traditional winemaking techniques, together with an award winning restaurant, Xanadu Wines is 'unmistakably Margaret River'. John and Eithne Lagan arrived at Margaret River in 1968, first planting their vineyard in 1977. The Lagans planted the first vines in what is now one of the region’s oldest vineyards. They named their vineyard Xanadu after the poem Kubla Khan by the romantic poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge. Xanadu now has a long history of producing wines of distinction. By the early Eighties it was already winning awards, and had begun establishing a reputation as one of the finest wineries in the region, a reputation that is being consolidated since the purchased of Xanadu Wines by the Rathbone family in 2005.
