Leeuwin Estate Art Series Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

Exceptional Cabernet here from Leeuwin Estate. 

Initially leafy, underlying mint, coffeed oak in the mix. With time, the aromatic balance shifts with the mint become more prominent, in tandem with chocolate coated berries.

Poise, elegance, balance - walks with grace and a straight back. Demands attention, makes you adjust your own posture against its own assuredness.

Berry mix - redcurrant, raspberry - against cedar. Look here for a definition of balance and poise, traits that become increasingly evident with time open.

Concludes with a glorious tail of acid, fine and integrated tannin, a little crunch underfoot. Effortless, classic line delivered by the fruit, seems like it will never end. 95
