West Cape Howe Book Ends Cabernet Sauvignon 2014


96 Points & Top Wines of 2016 James Halliday

It’s a super Cabernet that speaks of variety and region in full voice.”  Gary Walsh
 

“With the caveat that you have to not mind a bit of crushed gum leaf perfume that so often comes with Cabernet from the Great Southern, I recommend this very highly. Intense blackcurrant, boysenberry, dark chocolate, espresso and ground exotic spices. It’s medium bodied, plump in fruit and high in flavour, has plenty of ripe firm grainy tannin, well etched acidity, dark chocolate and small dark berries, and a finish that carries on very long. There’s some black olive savouries in there too. It’s a super Cabernet that speaks of variety and region in full voice.” 93+ Points Gary Walsh
 
“From several vineyards, each portion fermented and matured (18 months) separately in new and used French barriques. Deep, bright crimson-purple; a great example of the vitality and varietal clarity that West Cape Howe brings to its wines, terroir riding high. Its cassis fruit is mouthwatering, not a phrase you would normally use with cabernet, but true here.”  96 Points & Special Value Wine James Halliday
