Watershed Awakening Cabernet Sauvignon

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2010 Vintage) says
Deep colour and displaying the very essence of cassis on the bouquet, with layers of aromas and full-bodied flavours from cedar to black olive; a ripe, juicy and well-heeled wine, showing accessibility today, and the form to go a long way into the future.

Good crimson; the fragrant bouquet of cassis, blackcurrant and mocha leads into a vibrant palate that has some of the choc-mint characters cabernet presents when you least expect it.

Bright colour; crushed red fruits and a fragrant violet note to the bouquet; full-bodied with the oak coming to the fore on the palate; firmly structured and tightly wound, the concentration of fruit is unquestionable; a little time is needed to settle things down.

Stylish wine with poise and grace. Dense and inky, with pure varietal fruit showing a hint of mint and spices giving it a lovely lively lift.

If youÕre looking for just about the perfect expression of Margaret River cabernet sauvignon then this is right up there with the best of them. It's a multi-trophy winner and not hard to see why. That nose is all mineral and leafy black currant, while the palate is one of the most elegant and refined of any Margaret River cabernet I can remember. At the same time it has a deep and powerful fruit concentration effortlessly taken to a very long finish with fine grainy tannins and superb oak. Great wine

James Halliday (2007 Vintage) says
Dense crimson-purple; super-luscious and rich blackcurrant fruit is perfectly balanced by fine, persistent tannins and quality oak. Must has gone perilously close to winning the Jimmy Watson Trophy ’09.

Ray Jordan (2007 Vintage) says
Not hard to see why this wine was in the final judging for the Jimmy Watson in 2008. Wonderful perfumes of red berry, blackcurrant and light mint with a subtle cedary character. The palate is seamless and velvety smooth showing great fruit and oak integration. Stylish and elegant. A cracker.

James Halliday (2005 Vintage) says
A minty, eucalypt overlay is very pronounced in a light- to medium-bodied wine with just enough varietal fruit to carry those characters.

Nick Stock (2005 Vintage) says
This bright medium-bodied cabernet shows some leafy regional characters, coolly restrained cassis aromas and a decent wedge of toasty oak. The palate is smoothly fruited and cloaked in sweet vanillin oak, fine tannins run below. Give it a couple of years to fully integrate.

WINESTATE (2005 Vintage) says
Fresh crushed redcurrants on the nose and firm and tannic in the mouth, with long, lingering flavours.
