Winemaker Notes

Deep, dark and black core of fruit centered upon currants, blueberries, dark cherries and cassis.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
W&S 94
Wine & Spirits
Take cabernet’s austere demeanor to the surf town of Margaret River and it transforms over time, producing a wine like this 2016 Art Series—a fruity red with cold ocean currents running underneath. The wine’s deep plum richness carries peppercorn spice and fresh tobacco leaf as the details of the tannins unfold. Youthfully blunt, needing days to reveal itself, this wine’s savory concentration holds depths that will show with bottle age, and the freshness to sustain the wine for years in the cellar.
JS 94
James Suckling
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.
WE 93
Wine Enthusiast
This vintage feels a little riper than the previous year, and the vanilla-cola oak is currently more prominent, too. There's also oodles of bright red berries, flowers, mint, earthy herbs and spices, with a regionally expressive briny, sea spray note. On the palate, there's a little warmth from the alcohol and not quite as much textural complexity as the 2015, but this is still highly varietal and expressive. The fruit is tangy, supported by firm, chalky tannins. Drink now–2035.
RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Tight and tart, the 2016 Art Series Cabernet Sauvignon features crisp raspberries and cranberries. It's medium to full-bodied but taut and tense, with some chewy tannins accentuated by bright acids on the long, mouthwatering finish. Give it another year or two.
WS 91
Wine Spectator
There's an appealing density and savory quality here, with rosemary, green tea, sage, cedar and tobacco overtones to the currant and raspberry flavors, set against a frame of firm, gripping tannins, fresh acidity and a forest floor note that lingers. Drink now through 2030.

Leeuwin Estate, Australia
Leeuwin Estate Winery Video
Leeuwin Estate, one of the founding wineries of the now famous Margaret River district of Western Australia was established in 1973 with its mission statement to: "Produce wines that rank with the best in the world through the pursuit of excellence".

In 1972, legendary Napa Valley winemaker, Robert Mondavi, first identified the future site of the Leeuwin vineyard as being ideal for the production of premium wine and provided early mentorship to owners, Denis and Tricia Horgan in the establishment of Leeuwin Estate. The first vines were planted by hand over a five year period from 1973.

Featuring state-of-the art facilities, the winery building was opened in 1978, celebrating with a trial vintage. Leeuwin enjoyed its first commercial vintage in 1979, and was thrust into the international spotlight when Decanter Magazine gave its highest recommendation to the 1980 "Art Series" Chardonnay in an international blind tasting.

Maintaining a team of highly skilled and dedicated winemakers, Leeuwin Estate is now under the direction of two generations of the founding family.

Margaret River Wine

Western Australia

View all products

Home to some of Australia’s most elegant and long-lived red and white wines, Margaret River is situated in the farthest reaches of Western Australia. Relatively warm and dry, the region is cooled by breezes from the Indian Ocean. Margaret River takes some inspiration from Bordeaux, producing top-quality Cabernet Sauvignons and Bordeaux Blends with firm structure, mouthwatering acidity, balanced alcohol and notes of herbs and spice. For white wines, refreshing blends of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon as well as complex, age-worthy Chardonnays are regional specialties.

A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon enjoys success all over the globe, its best examples showing potential to age beautifully for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in Bordeaux's Medoc where it is often blended with Merlot and smaller amounts of some combination of Cabernet Franc, Malbecand Petit Verdot. In the Napa Valley, ‘Cab’ is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious, age-worthy and sought-after “cult” wines. Somm Secret—DNA profiling in 1997 revealed that Cabernet Sauvignon was born from a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc in 17th century southwest France.
