  1. Handpicked Highbow Hill Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2013
    Handpicked Highbow Hill Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2013
    This wine is from a single high-performing block that has had a number of excellent vintages over the past 15 years. It is a monoclonal wine of G9V3 Cabernet Sauvignon, an unfashionable clone in some circles, but in this vineyard, on this hill, a stunning example of the  variety. The fruit was hand harvest in late-March and yields were low but of excellent concentration and character. The must was fermented in static red fermenters and the wine was aged in French oak barriques, 40 per cent new, for 15 months.

    This is a superbly elegant Cabernet wine. This special wine, our very first Highbow Hill Cabernet, has superb perfume and purity of fruit. It is an elegant Cabernet Sauvignon that will age well over 20 years, but is ready for theenthusiast now. GARY BALDWIN

  2. Forman Cabernet Sauvignon 2015
    Forman Cabernet Sauvignon 2015
    The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon is dense, pliant and wonderfully expressive. Ric Forman's wines are always on the restrained side, but the 2015 packs a good bit of punch. Sweet red cherry, raspberry, sage, mint, and rose petal overtones all add to the wine's precision and nuance. In 2015, Forman took in fruit from Thorevilos, which he co-manages with David Abreu, but ultimately decided to add that juice to the Cabernet Sauvignon rather than bottle it separately. Dollops of Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec round out the blend. This is one of the classiest wines of the vintage. ANTONIO GALLONI

  3. Forman Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
    Forman Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
    Forman's 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon is fabulous. Rich and beautifully layered in the glass, the 2017 has gorgeous depth and a touch of exoticism that is so appealing. Ripe red berry fruit, floral overtones and a touch of spice are all laced together. Just bottled, the 2017 is super impressive, even in the early going. This is an especially racy style for Ric Forman, and yet he clearly got every ounce of potential out of the year. 95 + ANTONIO GALLONI

  4. Fraser Gallop Estate Parterre Cabernet Sauvignon 2019
    Fraser Gallop Estate Parterre Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

    86/6/4/3/1% cabernet sauvignon/petit verdot/malbec/merlot/cabernet franc. Reaching heights of near perfection, '18 was a vintage responsible for wines just like this. Supple intensity, concentration of flavour without a gram of weight, the length of flavour possessed only by very healthy, perfectly ripe and balanced grapes. What a gloriously seamless wine, continuing the proud legacy of Parterre. Drink by 2041. (96) ERIN LARKIN, Wine Companion

    Sporting a slightly different label now, with the house in a fetching sort of purple. The splash of colour works well. Here we have 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Petit Verdot, 4% Malbec, 3% Merlot and 1% Cabernet Franc all grown on the estate at Wilyabrup.

    Blackberry and boysenberry, sage and mint, fetching floral perfume, baking spice and vanilla custard oak. It’s medium-bodied with pleasing density of fruit, plenty of fine grained graphite tannin, cool acidity, so svelte and composed, with a long pencilly finish. Needs a little more time for the oak to integrate, but the feel of it, its balance and shape, mark it out as an excellent wine. (95) GARY WALSH, The Wine Front

    70%Cab. Sav. 30% Sangiovese.The 2017 Camartina is going to need a few years to open. That will be helpful as the wine ages, but it also means the Camartina does not have the opulence readers are likely to expect in this warm, dry year. Time in the glass brings out brighter tonalities of fruit and floral overtones that give a good idea to where the 2017 is heading. Readers should be in no rush here. ANTONIO GALLONI, vinous.com

  6. Nick Spencer Gundagai Light Dry Red Blend 2021
    Nick Spencer Gundagai Light Dry Red Blend 2021

    No, this is not just another "Light Dry Red" playing to the recent fads but a serious nod to the 'Burgundies' of the 50's 60's and 70's which Nick Spencer is paying homage to. These were classic light-bodied Shiraz and Shiraz/ Pinot blends that emerged from the Hunter and are highly sort after now. They are back in fashion and tasting this it's not hard to understand why.

    The style can be a little hit or miss and getting that combo of pinot and shiraz just right is critical, which Nick has done a brilliant job of here. A touch of sour cherry, cranberry and strawberries that plays off broodier black currant and blackberry fruit swirling around in the background. It's served on a palate that is crunchy and vibrant with lovely fine structure and soft melting tannins. Great poise between the fruit and other elements and while this is wonderfully easy to enjoy there is a plenty going on here that belies the seriousness of the wine.

    While its ready to go now and easy to love if you put a couple of bottles away for just a couple of years or so I think you would be a very happy camper!

  7. Craiglee Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
    Craiglee Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

    Cabernet and Craiglee don’t always fall off the tongue easily, but a shame for those who seek out only the shiraz accolades, cabernet is fiercely good in this vineyard.

    This has that succulence, that glide and slippery glisten, sweet but (medium weight) dark fruited, blueberries and mulberries with brined black olives, mint, white pepper and brambles. It’s effortless and mouth-watering, a refreshing expression of cabernet with a coolness and finesse. It slips along so merrily, quietly complex, that texture superb and the vitality up high. It’s an absolute ripper. MIKE BENNIE

    It’s not all shiraz at Craiglee – cabernet still features, even if it's losing ground. It would be a shame to disappear. This is good. Currants and cassis, menthol and licorice, very earthy – almost a terracotta aroma – and oodles of sweet cedary oak. Full bodied, with firm yet ripe tannins and definition across the palate.

  8. Querciabella Turpino 2017
    Querciabella Turpino 2017

    The 2017 Turpino is quite reticent, which is surprising given the style and personality of the year. Black cherry, pine, menthol, licorice and chocolate develop nicely over time. Readers should give the 2017 at least a few years in bottle, as it is not at all ready to drink now. The 2017 embodies the house style at Querciabella these days nicely. The wine is rich and deep, but not at all overdone. (95) ANTONIO GALLONI

    40% Cabernet Franc, 40% Syrah, 20% Merlot grown in a north-facing vineyard in Grossetto in the Maremma. Biodynamically certified. Aged for 16 months in fine- and extra-fine-grained French oak barriques, of which up to 20% were new.
    Lustrous deep crimson. Deep red- and dark-fruit nose with hints of dark spice. Savoury rather than sweet or ripe on the nose... Hint of earth and dried moss. Lush red and dark fruit with a muscular structure that is completely integrated with the fruit. Hedonistic, long, and with loads of appeal. Great fun to drink. (17+) WALTER SPELLER MW

  9. Cullen Diana Madeline 2021
    Cullen Diana Madeline 2021
    Diana Madeline. The name evokes a lot of emotions, for what the woman stood for then and what the wine stands for now. The 2021 vintage equals 50 years of cabernet sauvignon plantings at Cullen. When released in early 2023, it was on what would have been her 100th birthday. It’s a wine that can come from nowhere else, so strong is its sense of place. Expect to swoon over aromas of roses, violets and mulberries doused in baking spices, a ferruginous quality as much as detailed if persuasive tannins. It’s complex, complete and structured. Gosh, what a wine. What a woman. The perfect combination. (97) JANE FAULKNER, James Halliday

  10. Hobo Wine Camp The Hobo Wine Co Alexander Valley Cabernet 2021
    Hobo Wine Camp The Hobo Wine Co Alexander Valley Cabernet 2021

    The grapes for this wine come about 82% from our own block in Mitch Patin’s Lloyd Vineyard on West Soda Rock Road planted in 1998 towards the southern end of Alexander Valley on the banks of the Russian River. 11% comes from the Larrick Vineyard that we farm, and the remaining 7% is Malbec from J. Rickard in Cloverdale.

    As always, this wine was produced more like a Pinot more than a Cab. Fermented in open-tops with native yeasts, punched down by hand, and racked to barrels before being aged in 2nd fill French oak barrels for 15 months.

  12. Jim Barry St Clare Dry Red Cabernet Malbec 2016
    Jim Barry St Clare Dry Red Cabernet Malbec 2016

    Made from the two red grape varieties I think the Clare Valley does best.

    I love a wine where it takes me only a couple of seconds to form an opinion. This was love at first sight, or sip. Red and black berries, mint and leaf, a violet perfume, tobacco and all that, but it’s the dense, yet light palate that pulls you in. It’s packed with tannin, feels fine in the acid department, has this inky ferrous thing going on, which is wonderful. Pushes through with red fruits, black tea and super length, cool acidity ringing clear. Grand wine. Does the Clare Valley proud. GARY WALSH

  13. Victoria Ordonez Camarolos tinto 2018
    Victoria Ordonez Camarolos tinto 2018
    Wine has been part of Victoria Ordóñez’s life for as long as she can remember. Her father, José María Ordóñez, was a pioneer of the Spanish wine industry, distributing fine wines across the Province of Malaga since the ’50s. Although Victoria’s own professional career took off in a different direction – she studied to be a doctor and has a PhD in Medicine – in 2004 she decided to enter the wine business, initially combining it with her work as a health service administrator.
    Victoria admits that she owes everything to the Austrian oenologist Alois Kracher, with whom she worked side by side making Málaga wines until his death in 2007. It was at this point that her career took a fresh turn as she decided to focus exclusively on what had become her passion – the world of wine.
    Tasting: Bright red fruits, fennel, and other Mediterranean herbs, chocolate, and violet aromas. Maroon color and fine tannins lend a pleasing structure. Vibrant with red berries and spicy flavors, the wine is at once concentrated and fresh. Beautiful silkiness and great finesse with a very fresh finish.

  14. Hay Shed Hill Block 2
    Hay Shed Hill Block 2

    BLOCK 2 on the Hay Shed Hill vineyard was planted in 1975 to the Houghton clone of Cabernet Sauvignon. These old dry grown vines have sunk deep roots into the gravelly loam soil profile providing the nutrient basis they need. Block 2 has a steep northern facing aspect maximizing the sunlight interception by the vines providing ideal ripening conditions. 
    COLOUR: Dense dark red to black colour of great intensity.TASTING NOTES: Ripe berry aromas of great intensity with underlying dusty and earthy characters. There is depth to the nose indicating there are reserves of complex aromas yet to develop. The palate is substantial with intense and fully ripe, fleshy sweet fruit filling the mid palate with great palate extension driven by the ripe and mature tannin. The mouthfeel is robust but the tannins are smooth.CELLARING: This is a strong wine with ripe tannin and strong fruit depth indicating it will benefit from careful cellaring. The expectation is that the wine would benefit from 10 years of maturation. HAY SHED HILL

    Langmeil Jackaman's Cabernet Sauvignon 2020
     Certified Barossa Old Vine Charter – in the 'older than 35 years' category. Vines planted in the 1960s. Destemming, open fermentation, basket-pressed and two years in French oak. Screwcap.
    Heavy bottle. Rich, ripe but slightly wild mulberry and blackcurrant fruit. Strong, herbal leafiness pressed through the luscious fruit but the wine comes with a core of bitter dark chocolate and vanilla-pod sweetness. Balsamic extraction and density with interesting szechuan lift through the end. Powerful and velvety and very big. JR

    Domaine Naturaliste Discovery Cabernet 2020
    Bolstered by 11/4% malbec/cabernet franc yet a leaner style this vintage. It’s still refreshing with lots of upfront fruit from mulberries to blueberries, a hint of bay leaf and sage, wormwood and a touch of mocha. JANE FAULKNER, James Halliday

    Aromas of blackcurrant, tobacco leaf, ground spice and bark. Medium- to full-bodied with firm tannins. Pleasantly fresh on the palate with black fruit at the core. Crushed stone and black licorice come through. Best after 2024. Screw cap. JAMES SUCKLING

    … dark, opaque black-red in colour, with very fresh woodland aromas seasoned with a little spice. The wine is dark and intense in character, its fruits mingling with plant sap, earth and gravelly stone; there's ample soft tannins to give the wine dignity and food friendliness; and despite the overall freshness it still contrives to convey a sense of beguiling warmth and sweetness at the very end. Appetising, high-definition, and with near-invisible oak, this wine is very much on the pulse of its region. (97) DECANTER

    Forman Cabernet Sauvignon 2020

    Cabernet ……  who drinks Cabernet anymore?   I mean we can't all hang out in exclusive "Gentlemen's Clubs in Mayfair" can we?

    So I was super surprised when I had a chance to taste an older (2018) vintage of the Forman Cabernet a few months ago which was superb - so I couldn't wait to have a crack at the new vintage.  California cabernet - all big, juicy and ripe fruit….. right?  Nope - definitely not.  There were layers of blueberry fruit, dusty chocolate, coffee bean, black cherry - and lovely hint of sweet spice and graphite minerality.  Also a hint of oak supporting the rich - but definitely not over ripe - fruit.    With a little time in the glass fantastic savoury notes popped up … think sage, bay leaf all adding wonderful complexity and interest to the wine.

    This wasn't an over ripe jammy new world Cabernet … nor was it an austere/mouth puckering Bordeaux  - just a wonderful balanced wine - drink up! MATT O'CONNOR, PWS



    The 2020 Cabernet Sauvignon is a powerful, deep wine that marries elegance and finesse in a way few people can do, like Ric Forman. Rich and sumptuous in the glass, with terrific depth, the 2020 has so much to offer. Black cherry, mocha, licorice, spice, incense and new leather are all dialed up. Although it is early, this 2020 is shaping up to be one of the finer wines of the year.
    (95) ANTONIO GALLONI, vinous

    The 2020 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley has to be seen as a success in the vintage, revealing a solid bouquet of red and black fruits, tobacco leaf, cigar, and toasted spices. These carry to a medium to full-bodied Cabernet with a good sense of balance, moderate tannins, and outstanding length. It's well done and should evolve for another decade at a minimum. I followed this bottle for multiple days, and it always showed well. JEB DUNNUCK

    Craftwork Estate Vineyards Cabernet 2020
    Upon arrival at the winery, the grapes are destemmed, crushed, and fermented in small lots in open top fermenters. Next the firm cap of skins and seeds that bubble up and form on the surface during red fermentation is gently "punched down" several times a day. Punching down is a traditional method that gives the skins as much contact with the fermenting wine as possible, allowing the color and the phenols from the skins to be transferred to the wine. After a 10-day fermentation in stainless tanks, the wine is aged with a combination of French and American oak to round out and soften the rich, black fruit flavors.

    Dunn Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon 2014 1500ml
    Dark ruby. Captivating violet lift to the aromas and flavors of cassis, kirsch, licorice and mocha. Plush and fine-grained; extremely deep in the middle palate but this extremely rich wine impresses as much for its finesse as for its sheer density and power. Finishes with wonderfully harmonious tannins and great slow-mounting length. Owing to its sheer density and baby fat, the wine is edge-free from the start, but it's likely to evolve at a snail's pace and last for decades. (13.9% alcohol). STEPHEN TANZER

  21. Xanadu Cabernet Sauvignon 2021
    Xanadu Cabernet Sauvignon 2021

    Ok what can one say about Xanadu….. I find that wines are always better when made by a winemaker with a particular distinct hairstyle or head of hair, or in Glen’s case, a distinct lack thereof. A modern-day Yul Brynner or possibly winemaking’s Michael Klim Glen’s Cab’s are incredibly, annoyingly, consistently excellent…. Something stupid like nine consecutive trophies at the National Wineshow and a Jimmy Watson thrown in the mix likely reinforces this statement at least a little.
    Soo the 2021 Xan Cabernet – fair to say a tricky vintage in Margaret River. It rained and was generally cool and inclement caused plenty of winemakers to lose some hair over picking decisions, but not Glen obviously, having no hair to lose was a distinct advantage at this juncture and this wine is in fact delish.
    Brightly coloured, with big lift, smells of blackcurrants, cedar, classy oak, and a touch, but not a touch too much, after dinner mint. The palate is refined and very fine taking after the vintage that was, but surpassing it, with layers of crunchy red fruits and oh so fine perfectly al dente tannins. I kinda feel that this wine is ready and raring to go and a great option to smash on a Tuesday whilst awaiting some more brooding MR vintages such as 18 or 20 to spend a bit of extra time in the Vintec. JULIAN LANGWORTHY

    SPECIAL VALUE - Year in year out this cabernet delivers... If anything, this is quite tight and needs more time in the cellar, if you can’t wait, decant. It reveals an exuberant fruit profile, given its youth, from mulberries and cassis to blackberries all offset by complex savoury notes, think nori, iodine and tapenade, a flutter of spice, too and a little smoky. It’s fine boned in a way, as it’s just medium-bodied with filigree tannins, neat acidity and a radicchio bitterness to finish. I kept coming back to this wine – it unfurled in the glass but also, a few days later, still impressive. JANE FAULKNER, James Halliday’s Wine Companion

    Another fantastic wine that continues the line that winemaker Goodall established some years ago. It is a wine that always delivers so much above its price point. This is a tighter and slightly firmer expression of Margaret River cabernet than the 2020, yet there is plenty of power and drive through an intense and concentrated palate. Perfumed aromas of blackcurrant and bay leaf with a trace of edgy black olive. The structural core provides so much poise to a wine that will cellar exceptionally well. RAY JORDAN, Best of the Best Wine of 2023

    I think Margaret River winemakers have it too easy. Every season is perfect, a little rain and they call it tricky… maybe get off your surfboards for a bit and jump on the tractor? #justsaying.
    There is plenty of fuel in the tank here, I think if you give it some time this will expand beautifully. Loads of personality and an easy sense to the delivery of a range of fairly sumptuous fruit that is more caressing in nature, the tannins playing to the right tune. They are supportive but also they are noticeable, I want to see some structure in my Cabernet, call me crazy. This isn’t a soft and easy going thing, its bloody delicious, don’t get me wrong, there is a reason I keep going back for another bottle, but there’s a little heft and chew to the wine which lends it a classy, sophisticated edge, a bit of stature and presence.
    Look, my job is to convince you to buy Cabernet, so here is my sales pitch. This wine will knock the socks off so many things you buy around this price point, or much more, and it will do so in a cool, calm and collected manner. This wine knows what it’s about, it has swagger to spare and looks the part. Unlike Glenn, this wine scrubs up beautifully and I for one will continue to drink it. I’d love to see a bottle in five years and another in ten. Nice work again, ripping expression of Margs Cab with all the bits in all the right places. ROSCOE
