90pointsAshbrook Estate 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon-Merlot (Margaret River)

From one of Margaret River's early estates, this wine has spent two years in barrel and then another two in bottle before release, which makes a refreshing change from the often-too-young releases from Australia. It's still tightly wound, however. The classic regional notes of red fruit, pencil lead, black olives and dried herbs are all there, wound by granular drying tannins and a good lick of oak. There's a little astringency on the finish but overall this neatly achieves the power and grace combo Margaret River is so renowned for. Christina Pickard
