Wildberry Estate Reserve Cabernet 2015 | Amazing Aussie Bordeaux style Cab
94WA | Incredibly lifted aromas of black currant, cedar, brown spices, and rosemary. Medium bodied and quite elegant, with a complex array of dark fruit, spice and herb flavors, polished tannins and a long, clean finish. Drink the Wildberry Estate Reserve Cabernet 2015 now-2024.
95JH | Wildberry Estate Reserve Cabernet 2015 is bright crimson. While a super-elegant, light to medium-bodied cabernet riding high on its juicy cassis and redcurrant fruit. Yet, it has managed to absorb the oak with apparent ease. And even more striking, not in mainstream Margaret River style.
So, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate has called an earlier vintage of this wine “a superb value for a Cabernet of this character!” Most of all, the under-$30 2015, from an exceptional, low-yield growing season, goes even further, winning 95 points from James Halliday who calls it “super-elegant.”
From the Margaret River Valley
Margaret River Valley, in the southwest corner of Oz, is a hotbed for triple-digit priced Cabernet Sauvignon. And more and more the critics are swooning. So, when their cooing aligns on an extreme value such as today’s Wildberry Estate Reserve Cabernet 2015, we zero in. This 95-point stunner is one of the region’s best value reds. While packed with all the power and soul of this renowned spot for Bordeaux varieties — as good as it gets under $30.
But don’t just take our word for it. Australia wine authority James Halliday has awarded a 95-point score or higher to the last four vintages of this cuvée. And making it a cult favorite among enthusiasts and collectors. While Vinous writes that the estate “has positioned itself as a top Margaret River property in recent years.” So, if juicy Cabernet concentration and velvety tannins for just $26 per bottle sounds like a good deal to you, hit “buy” now.
