Howard Park Miamup Cabernet Sauvignon 2022


Restrained blackcurrant, tangy red plum and subtle bell pepper are lifted by sweet baking spices – nutmeg, cinnamon. There’s a cut of saline, nori-laced minerality through the wine’s core adding wonderful savouriness, unexpected for a wine of this price. This emerges more with air, morphing into a more pronounced dried kelp aroma. Very complex and elegant. A medium bodied palate holds a nice burst of flavour while maintaining elegance and poise. Red plum, blackcurrant and blackberry are quickly pulled into linearity by firm, silty tannins and blackfruited acidity to an even and elegant finish. This is quintessential Margaret River Cabernet in terms of its elegance and savoury salinity, with complexity and poise that punches far above its $30 price point.
