Awards/Reviews

92 pts Vinous

Full ruby-red. Spice-accented aromas of cherry, red berry and pungent flowers, with a subtle tobacco nuance in the background. Seamless in texture and lively on the palate, offering sharply defined red and dark berry and bitter cherry flavors that flesh out and turn sweeter on the back half. The floral and spice notes repeat on a persistent finish framed by polished, late-arriving tannins. Drinking window: 2021 – 2028.

90 pts Wine Advocate

After 18 months in 10% new French oak, the 2017 Miamup Cabernet Sauvignon has emerged with a gentle coating of baking spices and cocoa over its fruity core of plum and cassis. It’s medium to full-bodied, with a velvety feel, a streamlined shape on the palate and a long, softly dusty finish

90 pts Wine Enthusiast

This is a solid and affordable Margaret River Cab in which chocolaty oak notes sit atop red currant, cassis, sweet spice and tobacco leaf flavors. Medium bodied, the fruit in the mouth feels plush and ripe but still vibrant and silky. Tannins offer a lovely sinewy texture. The oak flares up on the finish. Drink now–2027.

90 pts Decanter

Heady with layers of plush plum, cherry and spiced oak aromas, pure, clean focused fruit on the elegant palate.

Winemaker Notes

Deep garnet in color with classic cabernet aromas of mint, violets, savory dry herbs and blackcurrant, and hints of smoky oak. The palate is fresh and bright, with red berries and plums, and a fine acid structure. While the juicy freshness makes this an enjoyable wine to drink young, it’s good balance between fruit weight, tannin and oak suggests the wine will age gracefully.

The Miamup Cabernet Sauvignon pairs excellent with Saltbush spit roasted lamb, with wild rosemary gravy. Along with thyme infused potato and leek soup served with spinach and fetta borëk.
