Tasting Note

This was easily the best wine at a tasting that included premium names costing as much as double the price.  It shows fabulous balance between succulent, irresistible fruit and sophistication, precision and finesse.  The aromas are concentrated and complex, showing blackcurrant and black cherry, seasoned by mint, green pepper and just a suggestion of eucalyptus.  Although dry on the palate, it is also super-soft and pure, with real flavour concentration, vibrant acidity and such velvety tannin.  The oak has mellowed and integrated since bottling, and comes across as a very delicate, soft, coconut cream character.  This is fully ready to drink, but it still has so much youthful vigour that it tastes like it could comfortably last at least another 10-15 years (should it be given the chance).

  • TOP PICK - A wine with good pedigree that I don’t get to try too often is the Howard Park 2012 Leston Cabernet Sauvignon from Margaret River in Western Australia. The 2012 is out now in BC and should be a good one to put a few bottles away for later. Most Margaret River reds seem to age quite well and are often a well-priced bet for the cellar.

  • 92/100 - A 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, the very deep purple-black 2012 Leston Cabernet offers pure, pretty aromas of cassis, violets, vanilla and menthol with hints of pencil shavings and bay leaf. Medium to full-bodied, it fills the mouth with black fruit flavours that have a pleasant herbal lift and is framed by firm, grainy tannins and balanced acidity. It finishes with excellent persistence. Drink it now to 2022+

    • The Wine Advocate,
    • Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW
  • The sweet floral elements of Margaret River are on display here with bay leaf and tobacco forming the base and the apex being sweet ripe flowery black currants. In the mouth silky very fine ripe tannins with elegant drive, poised each way, the fruit length hinges around the tannins with subtle earthy elements and a mouthwatering fine tannin finish. Beautiful balance with elegant length.
