The Alchemists Elixir Cabernet Sauvignon, Margaret River 2011 $30

There are some sage-like dried-herb and fresh earth aromas, plus a little mocha development. Soft, medium-weight palate with rounded structure and easygoing tannins. Lots of sweet blackberry palate flavour. Very pleasant early-drinking cabernet with balance and savoury qualities. Now to 2025. 14 per cent alcohol. 90/100 (Huon’s Wine 360)

Food: rare roast beef

Stockist: Vine Providore
