The deep garnet-colored 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Art Series is ripe and expressive on the mature nose, with meaty, marmite, earth, creme de cassis and plum preserves notes. Possessing a medium body, this wine is crisp, fresh and grainy, with good concentration and great length.

The 2005 Art Series Cabernet Sauvignon has a deep garnet color with a slight tinge of purple. Scented of black currant, tree bark, spice box, loam and just a whiff of capsicum, the medium bodied palate is fine and elegant with a good backbone of high acidity and medium level tannins providing good structure and balance. It has a long finish. Drink it now to 2019+.

A super-elegant and refined wine, with few of the flourishes that many of its regional counterparts exhibit; the fragrant, dark fruits of the bouquet are precisely replayed on the palate with its sombre flavours and tannins. Drink to 2030.

One of those wines that sets you back on your heels more than once, makes you feel "geez this is good". Huge nose, recognisably Margaret River. Intense and concentrated in the mouth. Still youthful, primary, sweetly fruited. Blackberry, blackcurrant, gravel. Outstanding length and ropey tannin structure. Drink in the next 1 to 10 years
