2001 Leeuwin "Art Series" Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1018659 94 points James Halliday

Outer quote mark Strong colour; powerful, focused and concentrated blackcurrant and blackberry fruit, with lingering tannins to underwrite a long life. One of the very best ever under this label Cork. Inner quote mark (2/2006)

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Deep red. Deep, brooding aromas of creme de cassis, blackberry, bitter chocolate and anise. Quite ripe and dark in character, with flavors of sweet dark berries, roasted coffee, fruitcake and molasses. Conveys a dense, expansive palate impression and finishes quite rich, with dusty tannins. The blackberry and bitter chocolate flavors deepen and build as the wine opens in the glass. Inner quote mark (8/2005)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The outstanding 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon Art Series boasts spicy, subtle French oak, cedar, spice box, black currant aromas and flavors gently touched by licorice and herbs. This attractive, medium-bodied Cabernet exhibits layers of richness, a graceful, restrained personality, decent acidity, noticeable but sweet tannin, and a long finish. Enjoy this beauty over the next decade. Inner quote mark (10/2005)

89 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Substantially more evolved than the 2002, the 2001 Art Series Cabernet features coffee and meat aromas and flavors that veer quickly away from primary fruit and toward savory and charred. It's medium-bodied and does show excellent length... Inner quote mark (2/2008)

K&L Notes

96 points from Wine Review Online: "A harmonious combination of subtle chocolate, herbs, and yes, plenty of fruit, makes you want to drink this now. But resist. Drink the 2000 now and cellar this one for a few years because it will improve as the tannins soften and the flavors continue to unfold."
