Leeuwin Estates “Prelude” Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot, 2007, Margaret River, South West Australia

16 Oct

102Beautiful Left-Bank Bordeaux-style blend, and it’s got some great bottle age on it. The complex bouquet of blackcurrants and dark cherries is underscored by dried lavender and fresh tobacco. Lively and youthful, the palate has integrated layers of black forest fruits, cacao and silky, fine tannins. Balanced fruit and acid structure finishing with mineral and graphite notes. Delightful with braised short ribs. $24
