Extremely Complex: 2017 Leeuwin Estate Art Series Cabernet Sauvignon Australia
Sometimes you cross paths with something that seems too good to be true. Well, this is one of those times. You would have to be crazy to pass up a double 97 point Cabernet Sauvignon under $50 a bottle from a winemaking wizard.
The 2017 Leeuwin Estate Art Series Cabernet Sauvignon from Australia has not one but two 97 point reviews along with six more reviews from prominent critics around the world ranging from 94 to 96 points. This is not only one of the finest Cabernet Sauvignons in Australia but one of the most exceptional Cabernets in the world.
Wine Spectator tells us the wine is, "aromatic and extremely complex, a big wine with many nuances." It was the "notes of sage, anise, bitter chocolate, terracotta, and gravel" that "lend savory and textural nuance" which prompted Decanter's 96 point score. The wine was perfectly summed up by Australia's #1 critic James Halliday when the first word he wrote was, "wow." No matter who revels in this stunning nectar, jubilation is sure to follow.
The hierarchy of the winemaking elite in Australia begins with Penfolds followed by prominent names like Wynn's, Torbreck, Yarra Yering, John Duval, etc. Rounding out the top of the pyramid is the Margaret River sensation, Leeuwin Estates. Leeuwin was one of five founding members of what has become Australia's preeminent region for Cabernet Sauvignon production.
Wines that are this spectacular don't come around very often, and when they do, they're in high demand. This is why you need to sprint to check out because our limited allocation will be gone before sundown.
