96 Point Vintage: 2018 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 97-point Cabernet Sauvignon under $50 a bottle from a winemaking wizard.

The 2018 Leeuwin Estate Art Series Cabernet Sauvignon Australia is not only one of the finest Cabernet Sauvignons in Australia but one of the most exceptional Cabernets in the world.

This wine is “capable of power, balance, ripeness, and glory” according to Australian wine critic, James Halliday, who compared it to 2014, 2010, and 2005, (three of the most successful vintages the estate has had). Halliday said, “The key to the brilliance of this wine is the textureThe tannins. They are tightly woven, very fine, and serve to support the fruit and the acid. This wine is built on a stable scaffold of tannin that both cushions the experience and defines it.” The “Art Series” represents Leeuwin’s most opulent and age-worthy wines.
