Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 – Black Market Deal #38824
- Rich, full-bodied
- Margaret River
This stunning single vineyard Margs cabernet has all the hallmarks of the variety that grows so well in the region. At five years old, it is also nicely softened by age, with a touch of oak still apparent. Blue fruit and cedar, sage and oregano lead the aromas. The wine has the expected wonderful structure and is in the start of a great drinking window. A touch of spice, medium to full, lovely drying tannins that carry the juiciness along the palate. If you’re keen on a noble red from a Five Red Star Halliday Rated Producer, then this is the wine for you.
What is a Black Market deal?
Black Market deals are only made possible if we don’t reveal the maker’s brand on site. The wines are the genuine article – absolutely no cleanskins or fake brands, just dangerously good value. You won’t find out what it is until it hits your doorstep, but you won’t regret it. Just keep it on the down low.
“Just a stunning example of single vineyard Margs cabernet. Rich yet refined, bursting with fruit and herbs, and laden with enough acid to pair with a big cut of steak”
It’s cool, we get it, you want to know absolutely everything about this wine. Well here you go, go nuts.

Margaret River is as elusive as it is beautiful, such that you really need to visit to truly grasp its haunting beauty. Über-premium Cabernet, Chardonnay and Semillon Sauvignon Blanc blends grow here. 'Margies' only produces 3% of the country's grapes, but commands over 20% of its premium wine market, and hasn't had an off vintage since 2006. You start to realise how often this region is overlooked when you can list brands like Leeuwin, Cape Mentelle, Vasse Felix, and Voyager, not to mention Cullen, Pierro, Moss Wood, and Deep Woods. It's safe to say that it's time for a revisit.
