Howard Park Miamup Cabernet 2018
The 2018 Miamup Cabernet Sauvignon balances power and elegance in an ideal harmony, with a remarkable intensity of perfume ranging from cocoa dusted blackberries, violets and hedgerow herbs, cassis and coffee, and sweet earth. The palate reveals ample and succulent fruit tannins that promote an array of rich and persistent forest fruit and dark plum flavours, overlaid with regional bay leaf and black olive characters, while French oak delivers accents of savoury spice and mocha. An immensely satisfying and moreish young Cabernet with the depth to reveal further complexity with 5 or more years in the cellar. Another concrete example of the outstanding 2018 vintage in Margaret River.
Very beautiful cabernet with blackcurrants, currants and mint. Very intense spicy aromas. It’s full-bodied with chewy tannins and a fresh, driven finish. Very linear tannins that run the length of the wine and give it drive at the end. Some tile character at the end. Needs time to soften.
