Robert Oatley 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon (Margaret River)

This vintage is still very young and tightly wound. It starts a little reductive, with some rubbery oniony notes. But underneath lie aromas of ripe red currant, peppery spice, anise and dried herbal notes. Fruit on the palate feels ripe and concentrated and the oak is a little flashy here, but tannins are savory and sandy textured. Overall, this is a solid, medium- to full-bodied Cab that needs another few years in bottle. Drink 2021 through 2027. Christina Pickard
