This is very smart buying.
93/100 James Suckling
Finely structured, beautifully balanced and showing great harmony of characters, Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon consistently combines elegance with power. The ring.bolt Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon is a fine example of these qualities. This is a wine that can be enjoyed now, particularly with an aged cheddar or Parmesan cheese, or will also age gracefully in the medium term.
A bold crimson red in colour with magenta hues. The nose has rich aromas of violets, black cherries and mulberries with hints of cassis and forest-floor characters. The wine opens with the pretty floral characters of the nose and a rich blackberry edge before progressing to the mocha oak mid palate and finishing with succulent tannins that continue the experience long after the wine has left your mouth.
“This is very floral, with lots of violets, together with such attractive blueberries, blackcurrants, cherries, terra cotta and fresh herbs. The palate is very intense, with rich, fine tannins that have supple texture and bright, taut red and dark-berry flavors. Toasty-oak edge to the finish. So approachable… - James Suckling 93/100
