More information on wine critics and ratings

A dark and dense nose of blue and blackberries dominate the nose, complimented by a lifted and fragrant aromatic profile. Perfumed violets amongst black cardamom, olive, anise, cloves and bay leaf provide subtle and classical layers.

The palate has concentration, depth and poise set with a blackberry, cherry and mulberry fruit spectrum. Layers and contours unfold into cassia, cocoa and coffee beans through the mid palate.

There is vibrancy and seamless structure given a finely laced acid line and gravelly tannins.

The 2019 Art Series Cabernet Sauvignon has admirable fruit presence in the mouth. As an immediate follow on from the great 2018 vintage, the 2019 vintage was cooler and wetter, but the average quality across the region was excellent. In many corners, the quality is argued as being on par with the 2019; it comes down to a matter of preference. Here, the wine is elegant and fine, very aromatic. It's an excellent wine and a clear statement about the direction and refinement of the Cabernet program at Leeuwin.

James Halliday (JH) : 97 Points (2018)
This was a freak vintage in the hands of many winemakers in WA, capable of power, balance, ripeness and glory. This has pomegranate, red licorice and peppered raspberry. The fruit flavours, while slinky and seductive, are not the major player here. And that is saying something. The key to the brilliance of this wine, like the '14, the '10 and to some extent the '05 before it, is the texture. The tannins. They are tightly woven, very fine and serve to support the fruit and the acid. This wine is built on a stable scaffold of tannin that both cushions the experience and defines it. What a wine.

James Suckling (JS) : 95 Points (2018)
A complex and layered nose of blackcurrants, fresh mint, pine cone and red licorice. Medium- to full-bodied with fine, structured tannins. Succulent and well constructed with a solid core of black fruit. Leafy herbs and black tea character add welcome depth. Delicious. So attractive right now but will age wonderfully. 97% cabernet sauvignon and 3% malbec.

Wine Enthusiast (WE) : 94 Points (2018)
This is a sturdy, plush vintage of Art Series with a long life ahead of it. It’s a touch austere at the moment, with some sweet oak showing and pinched acidity, but the distinctive varietal and regional character still shines. A lovely, warming earthy spice backs sleek aromas of black cherry, cassis, cedar, mint, olive brine and sea spray. Tannins are spicy and sinewy, muscular but still in a supportive role, allowing the juicy fruit to star. Best After 2023. Cellar Selection.

Wine Spectator (WS) : 93 Points (2018)
Dense and wonderfully juicy, with the tannic structure drawing you into a mix of intense cassis, huckleberry, clove, chai tea, dried black olive and smoked paprika. Presents a pretty thread of dried rose petal, with dried herbs lingering on the long, expressive finish.

Wines & Spirits (W&S) : 94 Points (2016)
Take cabernet’s austere demeanor to the surf town of Margaret River and it transforms over time, producing a wine like this 2016 Art Series—a fruity red with cold ocean currents running underneath. The wine’s deep plum richness carries peppercorn spice and fresh tobacco leaf as the details of the tannins unfold. Youthfully blunt, needing days to reveal itself, this wine’s savory concentration holds depths that will show with bottle age, and the freshness to sustain the wine for years in the cellar.
