Cape Landing Blackwood Cabernet Sauvignon 2020


Margaret River Cabernet is one of this country’s great wine styles and, over recent years, we have seen a number of producers put out a challenge to the traditionally lauded producers, these guys among them. This has a deep maroon/garnet hue. Very young at this stage, indeed, it is seemingly still a touch raw with some splintery oak evident. Black fruits, dry herbs, truffles, coffee grinds and black cherries to start, the coffee grinds step up towards the finish of the palate even more. With fine tannins, this is a wine of medium length, though every reason to believe that it will improve in time. Put it away for a few years and then enjoy it for the next eight to twelve.
