"The logical progression with the dials turned up. Lots of concentrated black fruit with herbal ribbon. Lots of cedar, tobacco and spice from the 50% new oak. Lots of tannin from extended maceration on skins. It’s chunky, sturdy, built & will last as long you like." - 95 Points, James Halliday

"This is a classic Wilyabrup Cabernet Sauvignon is medium to full bodied in structure with a powerful palate and fine grained tannins. The nose on the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is very lifted displaying berry fruits in the blackberry, cassis, red currants and mulberry spectrum, with dark chocolate undertones. The palate also displays elegance and freshness, with a beautiful balance of fruit and oak flavours, the result of 14 months oak maturation.  This vintage will drink beautifully now as a young wine, however a wine with this much fruit and extract will also mature wonderfully for the next 15 years."
