The 2012 Eagles Rest Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon shows a bright Garnet/ Ruby red colour. The nose is full of red berry and floral aromatics, quite intense but delicate at the same time. Underlying blackberry/ cassis and leafy tobacco notes add complexity to the bouquet. The palate opens with blackberry and coco powder only to be wrapped up in a cloak of spice and subtle oak. Classic Cabernet tannin and fine acidity drive the texture of this wine. Fine yet powerful with length and persistence.
