Wine of the Week AU

Xanadu Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2014, Margaret River, AUD $85

A beautifully fine, tight and structured cabernet. Youthful and primary with refined fruit and reserved oak. It is great to see a youthful wine unburdened by a plush, over-sweet palate. Red fruits, crushed herbs, fine tannins and integrated acidity. Just an infant. Needs time but the future is looking bright indeed. Highly recommended. (Screwcap)
