92pointsClairault 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon (Margaret River)

This is a restrained and polished wine that neatly demonstrate's Margaret River's ability to produce world class Cabernet. It opens fairly delicately, with aromas of cherries, red currents, licorice, tobacco leaf and graphite, with a touch of olive and peppery wood spice. The palate then comes at you full throttle—acid, oak, tannins, fruit and alcohol—there's nothing shy or demure here. But there's also bags of complexity, regionality and age-worthiness. Drink now, with time in decanter and protein or better yet, wait a decade. Christina Pickard
