2018 Cullen Cabernet Sauvignon-Merlot Margaret River Western Australia

SKU #1518810 95 points James Halliday

Outer quote mark Matured in French oak (25% new) for an average of 6 months. A lifted, quite fragrant bouquet, with aromas of bay leaf, fresh green herbs, red berry fruits and cedar. A finely balanced medium- bodied palate, silky and supple with ripe but restrained flavours interwoven with very fine tannin. Poised and precise. Inner quote mark (8/2020)

93 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A convincing rendering of this very drinkable, concentrated and vibrant red blend. Aromas of dark cherries, blueberries and plums, as well as licorice, leaves, roasting herbs, cedar and subtle spices. The palate is fresh with red-berry, cherry and blue-fruit flavors and is crisply defined by long, vibrant tannins. Inner quote mark (9/2020)

93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Deep violet. Cherry pit, blackberry, woodsmoke, succulent herbs, pipe tobacco and a sexy vanilla nuance on the nose. Chewy, palate-coating red and blue fruit flavors show a deft blend of power and energy. An exotic floral pastille flourish develops with air and carries through the impressively long, youthfully tannic finish, which features hints of sweet dark berries, mocha and baking spices. Inner quote mark (7/2021)

93 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This Cab-dominant blend, from one of Margaret River's founding wineries, encompasses the essence of the region. Brambly fruit mingles with notes of tomato stem, tobacco leaf, black olive and menthol, supported by polished, cherry cola-like oak. The palate is medium bodied, while the crunchy, vibrant fruit is tempered by taut, sappy, textural tannins. Inner quote mark (12/2020)

Cullen is one of the biggest names in Margaret River today. This is not only due to the acclaim for their wines vintage after vintage, but also their incredible dedication to environmentalism and sustainability.. Their wines are produced organically, biodynamically, certified sustainable and carbon neutral. They plant trees after every vintage across their estate in order to offset carbon from each vintage. Their wines also happen to be phenomenal. The 2018 Cullen Cabernet Sauvignon-Merlot is a blend of 62% Cabernet Sauvignon and 37% Merlot with a splash of Cabernet Franc. There’s depth, richness, and complexity all operating at full volume with a taut wall of fine tannin and plush mouthfeel. Plum, violets, black currant, and nuances of cigar box all work in this exceptional blend that could easily stand up wines from Napa at twice the price.
