92pointsForest Hill 2017 Highbury Fields Cabernet Sauvignon (Great Southern)

This is a cool-climate Cabernet from the far south of Western Australia. The nose is open and expressive, an enticing mix of licorice, currants, baking spices, dried mint and chocolate with mineral undertones and, as it warms in glass, a toffee oak note. Solidly medium bodied, the mouthfeel is silky with a classic combo of power and restraint. Taut, chalky tannins girdle pristine fruit and spice. Drink now–2035 and likely beyond. Christina Pickard
