Why do we love this wine?

Another vintage, another classic. How can you expect anything less from Leeuwin Estate with their Art Series cabernet? They’ve been making this iconic and age-worthy wine over in Margaret River for decades. I think they’ve got it all figured out by now. And even in the context of year upon year of special cab savs, the 2016 stands out. James Halliday gave it 97 points, his highest review ever for this wine. While his review laments on the history and winemaking, here’s Nick Stock’s writeup which best describes this specific vintage:

Profile

Blackcurrant
Blueberry
Cherry
Full-bodied
Silky
Concentrated

‘Impressively curated cabernet with cedar and tobacco aromas framing bright red berries, as well as bergamot, black tea, red plums and violets. The palate has a smooth, succulent and elegantly juicy shape and such fine, taut and layered tannins that carry so long and pure. Superb cab with power and elegance. Best from 2024.’
