The 2009 'Margaret' continues Woodland's run of this finely honed Cabernets that sells for a song.

Despite auspicious beginnings in the early 1970s, the Woodlands label was mothballed for some time in order to put the kids through private schooling. The family instead sold their fruit to other producers in the region. When the Woodland's 2007 'Margaret' blend came to our attention late last year, it was nothing short of a revelation. Margaret River reds from 2009 have been compelling across the board. From November a wave of hot weather moved across the region, aided by cool southerly winds that kept temperatures down at night. From December onwards there was consistent warm weather– all Woodland's 2009 wines came in perfectly ripe at 13.5% alcohol. Composed of 69% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Merlot and 15% Malbec matured in French oak for 18 months. Very deep dark crimson red colour with dark crimson red hue. The nose offers up lifted scents of dark mulberry, some blackcurrant, cedar, a touch of bay leaf, cigar box and spice notes. A very refined Bordeaux like sniff which will continue to build complexity with bottle age. Medium to full bodied the palate displays great finesse and class with a refined flavour profile of ripe mulberry and blackcurrant followed by some cedar, cigar box and spice. Super fine grained perfectly integrated tannins. Dryish finish with long mulberry, cedar, cigar boxand spice aftertaste.
