Bit of spice at the end, combined with a dark purple color make this amazing! Maybe it was the meal it accompanied, but this is great for sipping, with great body and flavor. — 2 days ago
Seriously if you haven’t visited Whicher Ridge Wines and their sensory garden yet, pop it on the to do list for 2020 when you next head down south from Perth. We visited in 2015 and still look back on what a great spot it is.
Plus their wines are 👌
This here is a new release - the Whicher Ridge ‘Elevation’ 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon. A big thanks to Cathy for sending us over this sample to try.
I convinced my red wine loving Dad to help out with the tasting note for this one.
In the glass it’s a deep garnet red shade. The nose is an interesting mix of fruit and savoury. It made me think of blackcurrants and berries with charcuterie, sweet spices, black olives and dark chocolate. While in the mouth it coats the mouth with flavour and is very approachable now but will age well too as it has sturdy acids and tannin in there. It’s full of berries - blue and black berries, boysenberries and a hint of tobacco.
This wine was sent to me as a sample, I was under no obligation to post about it.

Dusty, mint, tomato leaf and vanilla aromas. On the medium bodied palate with this Bordeaux blend which also adds Shiraz and Malbec there are black currant and savoury flavours. Finishes with some astringency. I have always thought the Barossa Valley is best suited to Shiraz personally although there are some historic blocks of Cabernet like Penfolds Block 42 which can produce some amazing Cabernet from ancient vines in the Barossa. — 12 days ago

Crimson with a tawny rim showing its 28 years of age. Mocha, red currant loam and spice aromas. Medium weight sweet spicy notes on the palate with resolved Tannins - Seamless! Lacks the fruit power to be a great Grange - just merely Very Good, particularly for the cool growing season in 1992. More elegant than a blockbuster like 83, 86, or 91. A classy wine whichever way you cut it. — 4 days ago
