This may be one of the finer versions we have tried from this consistently over delivering label and its Margaret River Cabernet. The Robert Oatley team makes impressive wines across its portfolio and the one wine that seems to put this into perspective is the 2016 signature Series Cabernet Sauvignon. Fuller bodied, this is loaded up with some spice and bay leaf infused fruit flavors that fills the palate, the tannins on the backend are firm enough to give this the structure to age magnificently yet not hinder its enjoyment as we speak. All things are in balance, suggesting that should be an impressive drop for a number of years.

Big and rich, there is plenty here for fans of full-bodied reds: juicy bramble berries, milky coffee, spice and a mouthfilling palate, with sinewy yet elegant tannins. Still in its infancy, this wine will age for decades. Drink now–2036
