2014 Leeuwin "Art Series" Cabernet Sauvignon Margaret River Western Australia (Elsewhere $65)

SKU #1421738 96 points Bob Campbell

Outer quote mark Very deep red/purple colour. The bouquet is all about concentrated, perfectly-ripened cabernet fruit embellished with stylish oak. Cedar and berries. The wine is very intense and cast in an elegant but full-bodied style, with red berry fruit in abundance on the palate. The tannins are emphatic but fine and restrained, beautifully tailored. A lovely wine indeed - to cellar or enjoy now. (Huon Hooke - The Real Review) Inner quote mark (5/2018)

93 points James Halliday

Outer quote mark Reticent. Firmly structured. Southern Margaret River across its verdant veins. Lathered in classy oak (23 months' ageing in all), this needs time to liberate itself from its structural carapace. The intensity, however, cannot be denied. Cassis, dried sage, plum and a herbal potpourri mingle within. The sappy length and emerging layers with time in the glass, all bode for a bright future ahead. Inner quote mark (9/2018)

93 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark At first, the fresh herbs, such as eucalyptus and mint, really captivate, but this turns into blue fruits such as blackcurrants and blueberries. A hint of pine needles and mahogany, too. The palate has the answer to the punchy acidity as it shows a nice serving of fruit. This finishes chewy. Inner quote mark (8/2019)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Stylish, fresh and vibrant, with taut cherry and currant flavors at the core, accented by notes of pepper, tobacco and fresh herb. Finds a balance between density and polish. Cigar box details linger on the finish. Drink now through 2030. (MW) Inner quote mark (12/2019)

K&L Notes

Winemaker's Notes: "A highly expressive and fragrant nose with violet, lavender, bay leaf and fennel seed weaving through a dense core of blackcurrant and red cherry. Subtle anise, cumin, cedar, cracked coffee bean and cocoa lie in the background. The palate has purity and elegance; delicate layers of cherries, blackcurrants and Satsuma plums combine with a vibrant thread of natural acidity, giving direction and focus. Cinnamon and clove are present on the mid-palate which extends long with tightly coiled powdery tannins."

Leeuwin continues to produce one of the best Australian Cabernets year after year. The 2014 Leeuwin Art Series Cab is the most elegant rendition of this wine I have had to date. Filled with soft aromas of subtle mint, faint touches of nutmeg, along with whifs of cinnamon, and vanilla. On the palate, the wine is broad and full. Bright acid pushes cassis, blackberry, and black cherry elements to the forefront. In the background there is plenty of minerality that gives the flavor palate definition. This is so well balanced and nuanced. Every minute this wine is in my glass it is getting better. So many complex elements of when you look at it closely, but an equally delicious drinking experience that anyone will love.

The 2014 Leeuwin Art Series Cabernet is a complex and elegant wine.The nose is plush and aromatic -crushed raspberries, baking spices, hint of vanilla- while the palate offers layers of blackberry, cassis, hint of cranberries subtle tones of acid, balanced tannins and medium bodied. When you try it you'll find it hard to believe the quality of wine you get at this price. Grab a couple extra to cellar for future enjoyment!

Another ripper from Leeuwin. This has to be one of the most consistent producers on the planet. Their Cab is always a benchmark expression of Margaret River Cabernet complete with aromatic red / black fruits, mint, subtle eucalyptus notes, warm earth, sandstone, and cigar box complexities. Medium weight with appropriate varietal tannins but remaining highly accessible even as a young wine. Tasted again on day two and three - the wine continues to drink beautifully with no signs of deterioration suggesting it will hold up very well in the cellar. A bargain for such quality and pedigree.
Drink from 2019 to 2030

This is a fascinating wine. The nose was wildly aromatic, full of tar, spice, igneous intrigue with wild brush and some deep, brooding, unspecified, dark fruit. I know that sounds a bit mysterious, and maybe even hard to understand, but it was really fascinating--maybe just not what you might be expecting from a Cabernet. On the palate the wine was supple and perhaps a little less mysterious, it showed good weight and savory components, definitely not a fruit bomb. The finish was long, buoyant and had submerged tannins creeping in on the end. A really fascinating wine you should try.
