WA 92+ The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Hickinbotham offers the most saturated color. The aromatics feature Asian spices, violets, and incense along with expressive black fruits. Structured and tannic, bordering on austere on the palate, it is a muscular, brawny effort that will require 6-8 years of cellaring to become approachable. JM Dec 2009.
WA 92 The 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Sandown Vineyard is a more structured wine that will profit from 6-8 years of additional cellaring. Its drinking window will extend from 2015 to 2031. JM Oct 2009.
WA 93 The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Sandown is similarly styled. Spicy black fruit aromas mingle with mineral and floral notes leading to a medium to full-bodied wine packed with flavor. It will require 4-6 years to fully unwind but the balance is there for a graceful evolution. JM Dec 2009.
BLEND 93% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Petit Verdot, 3% Cabernet Franc COLOUR Vibrant, deep ruby red with purple hues. AROMATICS Vivacious blackcurrant, blueberry, vanilla and dark chocolate are surrounded by mint leaf, sage and violet aromas. PALATE The palate provides dark berry fruit, bay leaf and cedary French oak flavours supported by refined powdery tannins, balancing acidity and a persistent length on the finish. OAK MATURATION 21% new 100% French Oak - 18 months in barrel. AGEING POTENTIAL Drink over the next 5 - 10 years
James Halliday 96 points. “Includes 4.7% petit verdot. This is a cabernet for real men. It spent 10 days on skins (including cold soak), matured for 18 months in French oak (45% new). The tannins, accompanied by dried herbs, are a positive feature extending the length of a very good wine anchored with blackcurrant fruit.”

Sydney Royal Wine Show 2018 Trophy - best mature red. Huon Hooke 95 points. James Halliday 95 points. "If you are looking for a Margaret River cabernet that is as classy as it is classic, with intensity of varietal cassis flavour springing from a medium-bodied palate at modest alcohol, go no further. Many vinification methods were used, and once in barrel, each was monitored for its development; thereafter, the wine spent 14 months in French hogsheads (20% new). To 2039." JH.

James Halliday 95 points. Dark crimson red. Dark berry aromas with chocolate, rosemary & thyme notes. Dusty tannin backbone layered with ripe berry fruit and dried herbs. The palate is complex with a long savoury finish. WINERY NOTE: The best fruit from our oldest Cabernet Sauvignon sites was hand picked into crates before being de-stemmed and crushed into closed fermenters and inoculated. The ferments were pumped over with aeration twice a day; temperature was held around 25°C. The wine was then pressed to new & used French barriques for Malo-lactic fermentation, allowing a soft integration of the grape and oak tannins. The wine was...

Wine Advocate 95 points. Gary Walsh for the Wine Front, 95 points. Wine Advocate Prettier and more aromatic than the very good 2015, the 2016 Cuthbert Cabernet Sauvignon hints at violets and mint on the nose and adds hints of cherries to the cassis fruit. Medium to full-bodied, it's supple, almost silky on the palate, with a finish that's simultaneously mouthwatering and firmly tannic. It should drink well for at least a decade. JC Sep 2018. You’d not find many people called Cuthbert these days, much like Gary, in a way. Blackcurrant/blackberry, liquorice, dark mint chocolate, pepper and bread dough. Medium to full-bodied, deep fruit,...
James Halliday 96 points. "Compact and taut, with firm varietal references across a veil of cassis, bay leaf, thyme and in these parts, olive. A chassis of verdant herb, dried and strewn across a long finish defined by youth, a little unresolved oak and the voice of immense potential." JH COLOUR Deep Crimson with a purple hue. NOSE Displaying a perfumed nose of dark berries and savoury characters. PALATE The palate is full of juicy berries and earthy notes that are supported by well integrated fine tannins. CELLAR POTENTIAL 8-10 years OAK Francois Frere Seguin Moreau Nadalie Cooperages MATURATION 16 months in 100% French oak.
James Halliday 95 points. "The tannins at this stable, evidenced by the top tier reds, are illustrious. This is no exception. fine-grained and woven across a seam of sage, bouquet garni and gravel. Texture, so fine. Currant, plum, pencil shavings and graphite, too, yet it is the structure uber alles that draws me in and keeps me coming back for another glass. A tapestry of complexity."

James Halliday 95 points. Located Fleurieu Peninsula South Australia. Hand-picked, destemmed, crushed, open-fermented, wild yeast, matured for 18 months in French oak (20% new). An interesting wine, the key to its individuality its 5-week maceration in skins, then being pressed direct to barrel. It finally comes out of oak and into bottle, bringing with it a fine stream of juicy dark fruits and fine-grained tannins. Drink to: 2043. Date Tasted: Feb 2016; Alcohol: 14.5%; Rating: 95 Points & Special Value Star; James Halliday; James Halliday Wine Companion

Intense dark fruit flavours of blueberry and currants on the palate with liquorice and dark chocolate. Firm tannins on a long finish. Char grilled rib eye with root vegetables and seasonal greens. The 2015 Vintage had dryer than average winter conditions resulting in a less vigorous spring and subsequent reduced yields across all varieties, this was followed with mild days and cool nights which resulted in a near perfect slow ripening pattern for both red and white grape varieties with fantastic natural acid...
