Cabernet Sauvignon’s spiritual home, and perhaps its true origin, is in Bordeaux, where it tends to be blended with other varieties such as Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Australian Cab Savs are commonly made as single varietal wines, with Coonawarra and Margaret River heading most wine lovers’ lists of Cabernet regions.
Bright cherry red in colour with a fruit forward nose. On the palate rich flavours of raspberry, blackberry and plum are laced with hints of spice and backed by smooth tannins. A flavoursome wine of good structure and balance.
Item Code: ITM4661
A rich and inviting wine filled with bright red berry flavours. The tannins are approachable whilst lending length and regional structure. There is an underlying level of spice to the wine that adds complexity.
Item Code: ITM6050
Deep, savoury Cabernet characters of blackcurrant, dark cherry, damp earth and cedar mingle with a spicy complexity care of the vibrant Malbec portion (14%) Luscious and juicy upfront, the dark berry fruit is complemented by savoury elements of beef stock and dried woody herbs. There is a wonderful length of flavour as the palate transitions to a fine, textural and dusty drying finish in classical Cabernet style.

"This is one of the best wines that Deep Woods Estate makes and the one that I cellar for special occasions - and also drink it on a Tuesday with pizza." Julian Langworthy, Chief Winemaker
Item Code: ITM15337
Aromas of violets and glazed cherries are supported by hints of cedar, cassis and forest floor. The palate enters with fine-grained tannins and is followed by notes of bright raspberries and mulberries. A wonderful expression of Margaret River Cabernet from an exceptional vintage.
Item Code: ITM4836
Medium bodied and tightly wound with fine layers of oak overlaying dark and ripe Cabernet fruits. It is clearly varietal with finely polished, persistent tannins and savoury fruit sweetness on the finish. A classical Margaret River Cabernet that will reward cellaring.
Item Code: ITM7612
"It’s pure Margaret River. Gravel and blackcurrant, bay and cream. It rumbles and grumbles, as it seduces. There’s perfume aplenty, texture too, sets of tannin and a long filigreed finish. Reduction, toast, choc-mint, florals, black olives; all make appearances here. The cellar beckons." Campbell Mattinson
Item Code: ITM19718
"Silken mouthfeel. Good fruit power. Ultra-fine tannin and impressive length. It’s not a big or burly cabernet but it impresses from the outset, and for all the right reasons. It’s creamy, chocolatey, curranty and varietal, its more herbal side tucked neatly within. Pure cabernet." Campbell Mattinson
