Deep Woods Redlands Cabernet 2020
If Margaret River Chardy is a world famous, and much loved style, then Margaret River Cabernet is even more so. Again, this does not pretend to knock the very top examples off their perch (and nor is it priced to do so), but rather this is delicious drinking, full of flavour and great value. Deep intense reds and violets. Bold Cabernet notes here, with black fruits, cigar box characters, chocolate, cassis and more – a terrific nose. The palate is supple with the tannins on the finish very fine. Juicy, youthful flavours, but there is some serious intensity here right through to a long and impressive finish. Delicious now, but no issue in cellaring it over the next four to five years, even longer. I like this a lot.
