Leeuwin Estate Prelude Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon

2017 Leeuwin Estate Prelude Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon....$22.99
This has an array of bright, red-fruit aromas and flavors with a fresh and crunchy palate that offers a cedary-oak frame to the bright, redder-toned berries. Fresh, assertive tannins. Drink or hold. Screw cap.
Rated 92/100 James Suckling
Noticeably herbal (sage and bay leaf) and tea-like on the nose, the 2017 Prelude Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon also delivers attractive raspberry fruit. From a cool vintage, it's only medium-bodied, with a firm, slightly chewy structure and cherry fruit on the finish. Give it another year or two to relax and drink it over the next decade.
Rated 90/100 The Wine Advocate
