Other Reviews....
The aromas of lead pencil, graphite, blackberries, and blueberries as well as iron and violets is captivating. Medium-bodied with wonderfully curated tannins that are so fine and beautiful. Lovely to drink now, but will age beautifully. Racy at the finish. Drink now. Screw cap.

The 2020 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon was just (one week ago at the time of writing) awarded "Best in Show" at the 2022 Decanter World Wine Awards. Not bad for a little winery in Western Australia's southwest. The wine is not little, though. It is birthed of a warm, low-yielding vintage that produced lushly fruited, abundantly tannic wines that are as powerful as they are attractive. Perhaps that extra swathe of tannins puts it in a different class, however the fruit remains pure and, although plentiful, is expertly wedged into every nook and cranny in the mouth. This is a superb wine. A brilliant example of Margaret River Cabernet in a great year. Drink 2022 - 2042.

From the original 1987 plantings in Yallingup.
Superb power here. Dense blackcurrant with bay leaf, gravel, dark chocolate and black olive flavours sweeping through, floral notes lifting above. It’s both structured and svelte but the serious density of fruit here, in the context of vigour, is a dramatic marker of its quality, and potential longevity. This wine is not inexpensive but, it could easily be argued, it’s worth every cent, relative to its competitors, from here and abroad. In short, it’s a fantastic red wine, full-bodied and rock solid. Drink 2025 - 2040+

The reserve has its own DNA, with fruit off the original 1987-planted estate vines. Structured and compelling with a core of mint choc-coated fruit, baking spices and licorice. So much going on in this powerful wine, yet it is beautiful with fine-grained and plentiful tannins and a finish lingering oh-so-long. Drink by 2043.
