2016 Deep Woods Estate Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon

2016 Deep Woods Estate Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon

So well balanced it seems suspended in the air, cassis fruit supported by feather-light tannins, oak an absorbed spectator. This is a beautiful wine.'

    PLEASE ALLOW UP TO 2-4 WEEKS DELIVERY TIME AS WINE IS IN TRANSIT FROM WESTERN AUSTRALIA

    Representing the most important red wine made at Deep Woods Estate in any given vintage, the 2016 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is crafted from the very low-yielding original vines on the estate in the Yallingup region of Margaret River, along with fruit from a single grower also in the Yallingup Hills.

  • WINEMAKER'S NOTES

    The 2016 harvest in Margaret River marked the ninth consecutive year of excellent vintages for the region. February rain, after a dry, warm January reinvigorated vines and canopies alike.

    Alcohol - 14.0%

    TASTING NOTES

    Colour Deepest crimson with vivid purple hues. Aroma Lift and intensity are shown through rich cassis and blueberry. Overtones of anise and graphite add complexity. Palate Fully ripe tannin frames a powerful and majestic palate of varietal flavours including blackberry, blood plum and cassis. Delicately interwoven French oak characteristics add savoury complexity

  • REVIEWS

    'Matured for 18 months in new and used French oak. Excellent colour; the wine has a fragrant dark berry bouquet, the palate sheer perfection. So well balanced it seems suspended in the air, cassis fruit supported by feather-light tannins, oak an absorbed spectator. This is a beautiful wine.'

    'Black fruit, peppermint, camphor in a cedar chest, strong hit of star anise, creamy oak in support. Medium-bodied, fleshy and dense in tannin, good concentration, dark chocolate and mint, even acidity, tobacco and black olive coming through on the long rich finish. Love the tannin and structure, less enthusiastic about how it smells, but that often comes with the territory.'
    94 Points - Gary Walsh, The Wine Front


    '
    Incredible lift with notes of rosehip and blueberries, coupled with an enticing scent of star anise. Redcurrant and plum flavours are supported by powder-fine tannins and integrated oak.'
