Best's Great Western 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon

One of the greatest things about the Great Western wine region is its ability to successfully grow a broad range of grape varieties. Shiraz may be the regional hero, but Cabernet Sauvignon from the area can lay almost equal claim.

Best’s Great Western Cabernet Sauvignon is a fine example of the Great Western Regional style; showing rich, mocha and berry fruit with a solid mid-palate weight thanks to superbly concentrated fruit.

Wine Profile

A relatively cool season apart from a mid-summer heat wave. Good vineyard management ensured the grapes ripened fully and had lots of complex flavours and balanced acidity. This youthful wine is great expression of the variety in Great Western. It is possible to enjoy this wine now with food, but it will soften and gain complexity over the next 5- 20 years. The perfect accompaniment to a slow cooked lamb shoulder. Concentrated dark fruits are kept lively with balancing acidity and powdery tannins. It fades gracefully to a long medium bodied finish.

Cassis/blackcurrant fruits is given complexity by savoury tannins and oak. This medium bodied cabernet can be drunk now but will soften and reach its best over the next 5-10 years.

Good drinking now & enjoyable with red meat. It improved after being open for a few hours.

Crimson purple. Very rich powerful fruit with some spice on the nose. Great mouth feel with all the Cabernet components. Nice tannins. Finished lovely and dry. Is a cracking wine now. Can't wait to taste this in a few years.

Being a fervent disciple of Best's Rieslings and Shiraz' for some time now and having never tried a Best's Cab Sav, I was very eager to see what all the fuss was about. And boy o boy, it didn't disappoint.. Perfectly matched with my slow cooked lamb shanks, this drop tastes like the first flush of spring, and looks absolutely gorgeous in the glass with its rich crimson blood and juicy raspberry hues. Elegant, musky tannins carry a nicely rounded depth of mulberries, blackcurrant and a jolly whack of cherry, dark yet somehow ever so bright. Black pepper and cigar box aromas linger long after each sip. Full, graceful, delicious, and highly recommended.

Bright purple. This needed at least two hours in the decanter to really open up. Exciting nose of dark fruits with a hint of green capsicum. Palate had plenty of acid, fine tannins and fruit. Really balanced, elegant wine with the alcohol not noticeable. This will improve with further age. Excellent value for money.

Beautiful wine enjoyed with Med.Rare BBQed scotch fillet, the oaky flavour of the wine was fantastic with the BBQ flavour of the meat. Will have again and again with BBQs

Classic Best's Cabernet! This is a beautifully made wine highlighting the characteristics of the region. Fresh and bright berries with the classic inky hues that we have come to love. We followed the tasting recommendation of accompanying lamb, and it did not disappoint! Slow cooked over 8 hours Greek BBQ lamb shoulder was enriched by the ever so slight smokiness / tobacco. The wine softened beautifully over a few hours. Highly recommended!

Well what can I say, Bests 2014 CabSav was fantastic. We let it sit in the decanter for a while whilst we finished preparing dinner and the fruity bouquet it provided left us begging to drink it. It brought back fond memories of the 2013 Grampians Grape Escape and tasting the different wines from the region, but for my palate Bests Wine was by far superior. We enjoyed this bottle with slow cooked lamb shanks and good friends.

Lovely rich complex flavours (not overly oaky, which I love) a divine deep richness with a nose full of fruit and ripeness. It was enhanced even further with decanting for a few hours. Enjoyed with our Roast on a Sunday night.

The fabulous clear deep crimson colour attracts.The nose is keeping it's secrets for now.The palate also needs time open and food to display it's wares.Firm fine tannins hold a panoply of flavours;dark fruit,mineral,blackcurrant,and hint of eucalypt.More secrets will be revealed with a decent rest in the boottle.

Deep crimson in colour, slightly paler at the margins. Wonderful perfume as well as eucalypt and dried herbs. The palate has intensity, with berry fruit evident. Tannins are dry and well integrated with good acidity delivering a well balanced Cabernet that is very approachable now but will reward cellaring.

The first thing that struck me about this wine was it's colour - a pretty, vibrant purple. The nose then didn't disappoint. It had lovely mint and cinnamon characters. All of this lead to high expectations and once again, the wine didin't disappoint. It was very smooth with balanced tannins and spicy fruit flavours. We accompanied it with rump steak on the barbie, and while this wasn't the recommendation, thought it was a great match. We shared it with good friends from NZ who just loved it as well. For such a young wine we all thought it was very approachable now and very easy to drink. Perhaps a little too easy!!! :)

As others have remarked, the colour is a vibrant purple indicative of its age. A complex nose with berry fruits apparent. Tannins and acidity are well balanced but this wine needs more time to fully display its quality. It is obviously not quite in the league of the 13 Acre Cabernet, but is very good value and well worth buying a dozen for the cellar.
