Leeuwin Estate 2016 Art Series Cabernet Sauvignon (Margaret River)

This vintage feels a little riper than the previous year, and the vanilla-cola oak is currently more prominent, too. There's also oodles of bright red berries, flowers, mint, earthy herbs and spices, with a regionally expressive briny, sea spray note. On the palate, there's a little warmth from the alcohol and not quite as much textural complexity as the 2015, but this is still highly varietal and expressive. The fruit is tangy, supported by firm, chalky tannins. Drink now–2035. Christina Pickard
