Elevated, perfumed and fragrant, higher notes of bay leaf, clove and dried sage meet opulent blackcurrant and Morello cherries. Incredible complexity in a niched corridor of camphor, lavender, and cayenne pepper. Generosity, layers and contours surround the palate. Density of dark forest fruits combine with cacao, cracked coffee and anise. Vibrancy and energy is underlined with a mineral and graphite acid line and delicate elegant finish.

"It’s masterful to craft a wine that is structured, detailed, powerful and concentrated, and yet, it feels effortless. Mulberries, cassis, warm spices, violets and cedary oak come together in harmony while the tannins sashay across the palate. Flavours persist, as does the finish, and it will age beautifully but hard to resist now. Impressive wine."

"The 2019 Art Series Cabernet Sauvignon has admirable fruit presence in the mouth. As an immediate follow on from the great 2018 vintage, the 2019 vintage was cooler and weter, but the average quality across the region was excellent. In many corners, the quality is argued as being on par with the 2019; it comes down to a mater of preference. Here, the wine is elegant and fine, very aromatic. It's an excellent wine and a clear statement about the direction and refinement of the Cabernet program at Leeuwin."

"Gosh this is good. This is the region and the variety and the estate all committing to the task and combining to exemplary effect. Such structure, such fruit, such balance and such impact. Blackcurrant and pencils, dark chocolate and herbs, some eucalypt lift and even some florals. Tannin, my word, it’s beautifully formed, a keel with wings, a determinant. I kept tasting this wine and it kept telling me things. Leeuwin Estate cabernet is now right up there with the best."

"If you've ever watched mercury being poured, you'll understand what I mean when I say that the tannins have a seamless liquidity about them. They shape the fruit and allow it passage over the tongue and into the sunset of its finish. A serious step up in quality and texture from the Siblings Shiraz. The layers of flavour seem never-ending. This wine ages gracefully over the medium term, although my preference is for drinking it within 2–4 years, as I love the vibrancy, detail and poise of it as a young wine. Choose your own adventure."

“Another super impressive, super impactful wine. The quality of fruit is what carries this wine to another level. That density of fruit makes it somewhat less approachable now, but the wine remains elegant throughout, with the berry fruit a feature, supported by gentle spice and texturing oak. Brilliant value for a premium Margaret River cabernet.”

"Deep ruby red in the glass. Classic aromas of cassis, tobacco and cedar shavings lift up and are mirrored on the full, yet supple palate. The balance between the fruit weight and sandy persistent tannins creates a tension that sends the entire package very long to the finish. Very classy and classic Margaret River cabernet."

"This really shows some vibrant juicy sweet red fruit characters, which is a product of the vintage. The tannins have a firm astringency on the finish. There's an almost raspberry-red-cordial-like character here with vibrant, high energy fruit flavours. A very pretty wine of high perfumes. Mineral graphite and perfumed. It also contains a small but important amount of malbec, which adds some colour and spice."

"Just as the Art Series Chardonnay has Block 20 as its heart, the Art Series Cabernet relies on Block 8. Go back to the early days and it is fair to say the Cabernet struggled to garner the accolades which were showered upon the Chardonnay. No longer. This is now (another) jewel in their crown. Dark maroon hue. The aromas include black fruits, tobacco leaves, chocolate, coffee beans, blackberries, cassis, delicatessen meats and leather. Utterly alluring and this persists on the palate. Mouth Puckering tannins on a very long finish. The oak is perfectly melded. This has at least ten to twelve years ahead of it and the score should go higher, perhaps considerably higher, over that period. So much to like here. This sits comfortably with the top examples from the region."
