Reviews of purchase Leeuwin, "Art Series" Cabernet Sauvignon, 2012
Wine of bright ruby color.
Taste wine overbearing, but very elegant and sleek, with flexible tannins. Kernel bouquet of cassis and notes of wild berries surround shades of savory spices, dried sage, cassia bark, tobacco, red currants and cherries. On contact with air thin animated acidity, becoming more acute, manifested nuances candied rose. Notes of sweet red fruits linger in a very long, spicy, slightly peppery aftertaste.
The distinctive aroma of the wine is filled with peculiar to the region Margaret River wine flavors of black currant, which complicates notes of mint, tobacco, dried cherries, red currants, spices (anise, cloves) and minerals.
Wine will be perfect pair with venison and red meat, cheese, ham, pate.

"Art Series" Cabernet Sauvignon, 2007 - a delicious wine with expressive complex flavor and a deep, harmonious, long taste.

Here this sort of get the most succulent, and wines from it have characteristic mineral tones and notes of black currant and cherry bouquet. Vintage 2007 is pleasant now, but has the potential to keeping at least until 2018.
