From one of the most highly revered Cabernet vineyards in Australia producing world class wines. This wine shows incredible tension and finesse of tannin. 2014 has produced some of the most profound Cabernets from Margaret River that we've ever seen. 96% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Malbec and 2% Cabernet Franc. The nose shows exotic aromas of star anise combined with toasty French oak and red berry fruits. The palate is very fine and balanced, revealing an array of brooding primary fruit characters leading to a tense mineral finish. After opening up over the course of one hour, the wine softens to reveal more ripe mulberry and blackcurrant flavours.

Tasted as a barrel sample that is due to come out of oak in two to three weeks' time from tasting, the 2014 Matthew Cabernet Sauvignon shows deep garnet-purple in color. On the palate, it is rich, ripe and very intense, with firm ripe tannins and great length. This wine has great potential! Rated: 95-97
