  1. O'Leary Walker Blue Cutting Road Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot 2017
    O'Leary Walker Blue Cutting Road Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot 2017
    Easily enjoyed, with no bars to jump over; red and blackcurrant are the fruit drivers, tannins and oak a misty backdrop. JAMES HALLIDAY

    "What is this, and why haven't we been shown this before?" that's how it went down when recently trying this at a tasting with Dave O'leary. A pretty formidable combo here and what the boys have done is pretty impressive given the value of this wine. We had to include it in this pack and we stacked a ton down the front too.

    It's so soft and supple and with 5 years in the bottle or so its just in a beautiful spot with sweet beguiling fruit, a touch of violet and beautiful lilting style. Still plenty fresh and vibrant and just a touch of earth and fresh leather linger sneakily in the background to show its age. A ripper of a wine, beautifully balanced and just the perfect winter drop with that hint of mocha and fruit cake spice that weaves it way throughout and along the expansive pallet. A ripper!

  2. Moss Wood Amy's Vineyard Cabernet 2019 375ml
    Moss Wood Amy's Vineyard Cabernet 2019 375ml

    5/13/7/5% cabernet sauvignon/merlot/malbec/petit verdot. Hand picked, matured for 14 months in seasoned French oak. The 2019 vintage in Margaret River was cool and wet, producing wines of concentrated, high aroma and vibrancy. This is all of that, with layers of nuance on the palate. It is very restrained and long; unfurling, petal by petal, rather than revealing itself all at once. Elegant and classy to the very end. A ripper. Buy it and cellar it with confidence, or drink its beauty tonight – both viable options. ERIK LARKIN, James Halliday

  3. Warramate Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
    Warramate Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
    This cabernet lures you in with graphite and violets, the palate rolling into a velvety ball of black fruits, spice and subtle tertiary tones of earth. There's dimension and a fine framework wrapped around a flavoursome core of fruit. This is great value for the money, there's a luxuriant richness which hints towards a wine of pedigree.

    Hobo Wine Camp The Hobo Wine Co Alexander Valley Cabernet 2019
    Hobo Wine Camp The Hobo Wine Co Alexander Valley Cabernet 2019 A restrained and food friendly style. About 65% from Hobo's own block in Mitch Patin's Lloyd Vineyard on West Soda Rock Road planted in 1998 towards the southern end of Alexander Valley on the banks of the Russian River. (have you doubled up information.vineyard sites here?) The remaining 35% comes from a steep knoll called Trieb Vineyard in the more northern reaches of the Alexander Valley. Native yeasts, punch-downs and old French oak for about 15months. PWS

  5. Campo al Noce Miterre Bolgheri Rosso 2019
    Campo al Noce Miterre Bolgheri Rosso 2019
    Ripe and dramatic, a brooding core of spiced plums and red berries is laced with graphite and violets, thanks to a refreshing dose of cabernet franc. Attention-grabbing structure comes from a plush and chewy flow of tannins that take on an amaro savoury twist, offsetting the velvety core. A medley of complexing flavours comes from marrying four grapes (cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc, merlot and syrah) together in spicy oak. Reminds me of a delicious luncheon claret with Italian accents and attitude. GABRIELLE POY, PWS

  6. Nocturne Single Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2020
    Nocturne Single Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2020
    Winner of the Jimmy Watson Trophy for the 2014 Deepwoods Reserve Cabernet, Julian Langworthy is a much loved and respected part of the wine community. His sharp palate and masterful ways make him a weapon in the cellar. Nocturne is Julian's small label and this cabernet is his premium single vineyard red from a mature site in Yallingup called Sheoak Vineyard. It's big on flavour - cassis, lead pencil shavings and violets and very finely structured. The tannins are talcy and coat the tongue. This will develop majestically in your cellar if you can resist it in its youth.

  7. Vasse Felix Premier Cabernet Sauvignon 2019
    Vasse Felix Premier Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

    Does anyone here remember ‘White Knight’ bars? Popular in the 80s, apparently discontinued in 2016, sadly. Anyway, you can relive the magic, should you remember them, when you taste this wine.

    Mint nougat, blackberry and boysenberry, a little sweet spice and roasted nuts. Medium-bodied, quite minty and kind of juicy in dark fruit, something of a sappy herbal character too, grainy cocoa tannin, and a mint chocolate finish of solid length. It’s a little overt in regional (and vintage) character, but a good wine. Gary Walsh, The Wine Front

  8. Vasse Felix Premier Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
    Vasse Felix Premier Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

    This is a cabernet to crow about. The make-up this year is 90% cabernet sauvignon, 8% petit verdot and 2% malbec, all of which was matured in 44% new oak. But this break-down is for the record only. In the glass, pure and simple, it’s a star.

    It’s a medium-weight wine and yet it’s unafraid of tannin. You have to love that. It’s not out of whack, it remains in balance, integration is established and then it launches from there. Lots of bay leaf and baking spice here but then blackcurrant, fresh and juicy, which pushes into redcurrant, mint and boysenberry. There’s an undergrowth-like note here too, almost earthen, which teams terrifically with the tannin. The cellar beckons. CAMPBELL MATTINSON, The Wine Front

  9. Moss Wood Cabernet Sauvignon 2019 375ml
    Moss Wood Cabernet Sauvignon 2019 375ml

    96% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% each of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, this is elegance personified. A low yielding and slightly cooler vintage, the grapes went into small open tanks for fermentation, with thrice daily hand-plunging. 15 days on skins and then pressed to tank before it was racked to French oak, 15% new. Over two years maturation.

    As mentioned, elegance personified. A silky combination of coiled power and finesse, this is a glorious Cabernet. Blackberries, spices, tobacco leaves, kid leather, violets, cigar box notes, aniseed and delicately integrated oak. There is a gossamer-like web of complexity weaving through the wine. Seamless, great length and cashmere tannins. This is a brilliant wine. Ten years, twenty years? How long have you got? If you are serious about great Australian Cabernet, this is a must for your cellar. (99) KEN GARGETT, Wine Pilot

    Generally, contrary to many, I tend to favour 2019 Margaret Cabernet over 2018. I bit more brooding, dense, tight, ‘minerally’, and all that. Powerful, compact, brooding sort of style, but tight too, all black fruit, dark chocolate, a seasoning of bay leaf and baking spice, some floral notes peeping over the top. Tannin is earthy and dense, but smooth and layered, boysenberry and dark raspberry, firm acidity set neatly inside, and a tobacco and black olive savoury finish of length and intensity. A very strong release, indeed maybe the best in the last decade. High drinkability, even early. (96) GARY WALSH, The Wine Front

  10. Antinori Tignanello Chianti Classico Riserva Marchesi Antinori 2018
    Antinori Tignanello Chianti Classico Riserva Marchesi Antinori 2018

    This wine is made exclusively with fruit from the gorgeous Tenuta Tignanello in San Casciano Val di Pesa (home to its namesake wine Tignanello, and Solaia) and sees mostly Sangiovese blended with a smaller part Cabernet Sauvignon and other complementary grapes. The Marchesi Antinori 2018 Chianti Classico Riserva Marchese Antinori vaunts a smooth and silky personality with ample berry definition and brightness MONICA LARNER

    The 2018 Chianti Classico Riserva Marchese Antinori offers a beguiling mix of Sangiovese energy and Cabernet Sauvignon savoriness. Translucent and energetic, the 2018 has much to offer. I would prefer to see a bit more Sangiovese character, but the Marchese is designed to be a sort of mini-Tignanello and it leans towards the more savory end of the spectrum because of the presence of Cabernet Sauvignon.

  11. Yeringberg Cabernets 2019
    Yeringberg Cabernets 2019
    55/13/10/10/9% Cabernet Sauvignon/Cabernet Franc/Merlot/Petit Verdot/Malbec, all up 23 months in oak with 38% new French barriques. This was tasted less than a month after it was bottled and while it's a very fine Yeringberg with its beauty on show, it's reserved and needs time to adjust and settle. Everything is in sync. Lovely aromas of violets, autumn leaves, mulberries and more. The medium-bodied palate is layered with fine, textural tannins, dazzled with fresh acidity and exceptional length.

    SC Pannell Koomilya CP Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

    A block regenerated by the Pannells since they purchased it in '12, it produces small berries in small bunches of intensely flavoured grapes. Hand-picked, 10 days on skins, pressed to French puncheons for 19 months maturation. It is the only unblended wine so far made and sold under the Koomilya banner, 4560 bottles made. It is a wine of beauty, with effortless poise and flawless fruit that is medium to full-bodied at most. How long will it live? Try 40 years (99) JAMES HALLIDAY

  13. Handpicked Highbow Hill Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2013
    Handpicked Highbow Hill Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2013
    This wine is from a single high-performing block that has had a number of excellent vintages over the past 15 years. It is a monoclonal wine of G9V3 Cabernet Sauvignon, an unfashionable clone in some circles, but in this vineyard, on this hill, a stunning example of the  variety. The fruit was hand harvest in late-March and yields were low but of excellent concentration and character. The must was fermented in static red fermenters and the wine was aged in French oak barriques, 40 per cent new, for 15 months.

    This is a superbly elegant Cabernet wine. This special wine, our very first Highbow Hill Cabernet, has superb perfume and purity of fruit. It is an elegant Cabernet Sauvignon that will age well over 20 years, but is ready for theenthusiast now. GARY BALDWIN

  15. Cullen Diana Madeline 2020
    Cullen Diana Madeline 2020

    Another beautiful, soulful release, this one a bit darker, a bit bolder, a mesh of tannins over train tracks and tension, but a wine of significant pedigree and wow factor nonetheless. Dark chocolate and graphite aromas with salted plum, black olive, bay leaf and oyster shell. Flavours ripple with authority in that weave of tannin, dark choc again, panforte perhaps more apt, dark cherry, saline minerality, more bayleaf and cinnamon spice. Succulent in the finish, mouth-watering and very fresh. Compelling stuff. (96) MIKE BENNIE, Winefront

    The Australian wine classic that remains a bargain…..
    I love the combination of bright dark fruit, savoury notes and ferrous hints in a wine that will cellar well but also offers immediate enjoyment. An impressive 97.5/100 for me.  The 2020 vintage was a hot, dry one in Margaret River. producing low yields and wines that were generally aromatic, balanced and pretty. The Diana Madeline is elegant and beguiling. The blend is largely cabernet sauvignon with smidgens of merlot, cabernet franc and malbec, which gives a Bordeaux-like refinement with mulberry, cranberry and salted caramel notes on the palate. It is a vivid wine with an eminently sensible 13% alcohol level. The 50% new French oak is already well integrated and plays second fiddle to the quality dark and fragrant fruit.
