The deep garnet-colored 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Art Series is ripe and expressive on the mature nose, with meaty, marmite, earth, creme de cassis and plum preserves notes. Possessing a medium body, this wine is crisp, fresh and grainy, with good concentration and great length. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown

Reinforcing that... 86% cabernet sauvignon 14% malbec. On the nose enticing and complex aromas develop offering graphite and stone mixed with notes of beef marinade fresh earth and sandalwood bringing to mind Bordeaux. Reinforcing that impression is the elegantly profiled palate displaying flavors of black cherry and currants enlivened by refreshing acidity and supported by moderate tannins providing a lively finish that fades gently. This medium weight wine is immediately approachable and though delicious now it will be even better in 6-8 years. A worthy companion to Leeuwin's famous Art Series Chardonnay this is a classic example of Margaret River cabernet.

Winery

Leeuwin Estate

Leeuwin Estate is a family-owned Australian winery and one of the five founding wineries in the now famous Margaret River district of Western Australia. Formerly a cattle ranch, the property was converted to vineyards by Denis and Tricia Horgan upon the advice of legendary Napa Valley winemaker Robert Mondavi when he visited Australia and saw the estate’s potential as being ideal for the production of premium wines.

The estate enjoyed its first commercial vintage in 1979 and was quickly thrust into the international spotlight when Decanter Magazine gave its highest recommendation to the 1980 "Art Series" Chardonnay. Leeuwin now exports to 30 markets. The estate releases wines under the Art Series, Prelude Vineyards and Siblings labels.

Celebrating the combination of fine wine, food, art and music, Leeuwin features an award winning restaurant, cellar door and art gallery. The estate is renowned for staging spectacular events and welcoming visitors from around the world.
