Margaret River has, over the years, made a name for itself with its approachable style of cabernet sauvignon – pretty, leafy wines with fragrance and complexity. They are often crowd pleasers and easy drinking in style. This cabernet sauvignon from Higher Plane though is a little more classic and serious than most with cabernet’s firm backbone and ageing potential on display plus more than a nod to Bordeaux.

It’s still looking quite bright and youthful for a four year old with dried herb and cedar aromas underpinned by leafy, blackberry fruits. The palate is then dry, and full-bodied with generous fruit that again shows youthful vitality. Black fruits are on display with a nice little touch of violets too, supported by long, sinewy tannins. It’s ready to go now but also has the stuffing to drink well for another five years at least.
