Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JH 96
Australian Wine Companion
Deep crimson-purple; the fragrant bouquet sets the scene for the cascade of blackcurrant, redcurrant and cedary oak (over 30 months in barriques), supple tannins providing the framework for long-term cellaring. One of the blue bloods of Margaret River, and in scintillating form, the small amount of petit verdot and cabernet franc precisely weighted.
RP 95
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Deep garnet-colored with a hint of purple, the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon presents pronounced cassis, warm blackberry and spiced plum aromas with hints of dried mint, lavender, violets, cigar boxes and Chinese five spice. Medium to full-bodied with great poise and expression even at this primary, youthful stage, it has a firm level of fine-grained tannins and a lively backbone of acid through the finish with great length and depth. Approachable now, it should drink best 2015 to 2024+.
WS 93
Wine Spectator
Lithe and refreshing, with layers of plum and currant fruit on a deftly balanced frame, coming together with delicate hints of sage and tobacco on the finish. Offers purity, subtlety and depth.

Margaret River

View all wine

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 Sauvignon with firm structure, mouthwatering acidity, balanced alcohol and notes of herbs and spice. Complex, age-worthy Chardonnays are another regional specialty. Also common here are refreshing blends of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, as well as earthy, aromatic Bordeaux red blends.

Cabernet Sauvignon

View all wine

A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon is sometimes referred to as the “king” of red grapes. It can be somewhat unapproachable early in its youth but has the potential to age beautifully, with the ability to last fifty years or more at its best. Small berries and tough skins provide its trademark firm tannic grip, while high acidity helps to keep the wine fresh for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in temperate climates like Bordeaux's Medoc region (and in St-Emillion and Pomerol, where it plays a supporting role to Merlot). The top Médoc producers use Cabernet Sauvignon for their wine’s backbone, blending it with Merlot and smaller amounts of Cabernet Franc, Malbec, and/or Petit Verdot. On its own, Cabernet Sauvignon has enjoyed great success throughout the world, particularly in the Napa Valley, and is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious and sought-after “cult” wines.

In the Glass

High in color, tannin, and extract, Cabernet Sauvignon expresses notes of blackberry, cassis, plum, currant, spice, and tobacco. In Bordeaux and elsewhere in the Old World you'll find the more earthy, tannic side of Cabernet, where it's typically blended to soften tannins and add complexity. In warmer regions like California and Australia, you can typically expect more ripe fruit flavors upfront.

Perfect Pairings

Cabernet Sauvignon is right at home with rich, intense meat dishes—beef, lamb, and venison, in particular—where its opulent fruit and decisive tannins make an equal match to the dense protein of the meat. With a mature Cabernet, opt for tender, slow-cooked meat dishes.

Sommelier Secrets

Despite the modern importance and ubiquity of Cabernet Sauvignon, it is actually a relatively young variety. In 1997, DNA revealed the grape to be a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc which took place in 17th century southwestern France.
