Best's Great Western 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon

If Great Western didn't grow such great Shiraz, it would probably be just as famous for its Cabernet.  With age, they develop remarkable finesse and elegance. Great intense berry and leafy aromas.

Wine Profile

Colour:  Dense inky garnet with deep magenta hue.

Bouquet:  Rich berry aromas with some plum and blackcurrents in the mix.  A background of cinnamon spice and nutty oak add complexity.

Palate:  Lush and smooth dark fruit flavours with intense fruit tannins and a long rich finish.

Cellaring:  It is possible to enjoy this wine now with food, but it will soften and gain complexity over the next 5-20 years.

Enjoy with: The perfect accompaniment to a slow cooked beef brisket.

Vintage:  A moderate season with no real hot spells.  Very cool nights and warm days ensured the grapes ripened fully but retained all their natural acidity.  Reduced crops due to the dry weather and spring frosts.  very good quality fruit this vintage.

Summary: Dark, rich, spicy, earthy (whatever that means but you will get it when you try it), dry, good tannins, smooth and the aroma gets your salivating.

Waffle: Ok some people say to keep this youthful wine in the cellar and allow it to mature but I don't do those things and live in the here and now – so enjoy this now you won’t be disappointed.

I am not a big cab sav drinker, I moved over to Shiraz for the past couple of years however this was surprisingly delicious. Best's wines are consistently good especially their red's. Dry, dark, spicy goodness in a glass with that amazing aroma - a little odd but I loved smelling this and couldn't stop - I wonder if anyone else has the same problem? I enjoyed this with some cheese and biccies in the afternoon and polished it off with our BBQ lamb chops but of course you could have lamb shanks, meatballs, duck... it's quite versatile which is great and perfect price point to not look like a tight arse when going to friends places for dinner/drinks. You won't regret this little number, grab a bottle and remember to smell it (I know I know third time I have mentioned it) and enjoy this dry, spicy, lush, earthy, spot on tannins, decadent vino.

We enjoyed this wine with lunch of pumpkin soup, roast lamb and vegetables on a cold winters day. A rich dark colour with pleasant aromas of plum and berry. Very pleasant on the palate with berry, blackcurrant, and tannin flavours. A great companion to traditional roast.

The Best’s Great Western Cabernet opens with a developing sweet red capsicum and white pepper nose, as a young wine. It is a medium bodied dry style wine with fresh blackberry fruit on the palate and fine tannins. It will drink beautifully now with some aged cheeses, but if you can be patient in the medium term you’ll also be rewarded.

This is my kind of wine. The smell is delicious - chocolate, mulberry, raisins and perhaps the slightest hint of aniseed. It is a lovely ruby colour. When I had the first sip I could also immediately taste blackberries. Dry, yet surprisingly smooth for a young cab sauv. I really enjoyed the ever so slight sweetness that the chocolate and berry flavours brought to the palate. I am looking forward to my next bottle!
