Robert Oatley Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Robert Oatley Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 91 pts Wine Enthusiast 'Cellar Selection'

Tasting Notes

This may be one of the finer versions we have tried from this consistently over delivering label and its Margaret River Cabernet. The Robert Oatley team makes impressive wines across its portfolio and the one wine that seems to put this into perspective is the 2016 signature Series Cabernet Sauvignon. Fuller bodied, this is loaded up with some spice and bay leaf infused fruit flavors that fills the palate, the tannins on the backend are firm enough to give this the structure to age magnificently yet not hinder its enjoyment as we speak. All things are in balance, suggesting that should be an impressive drop for a number of years.

91 pts Wine Enthusiast 'Cellar Selection' August 2018
Big and rich, there is plenty here for fans of full-bodied reds: juicy bramble berries, milky coffee, spice and a mouthfilling palate, with sinewy yet elegant tannins. Still in its infancy, this wine will age for decades. Drink now–2036



Winemaker Notes

The Robert Oatley Signature Series draws on a remarkable portfolio of vineyards nurtured by the winemaking talent of Larry Cherubino showcasing Australia’s most successful wine styles and regions. Bob Oatley’s mantra was that all wines should be a “darned good drink”, and the high quality Signature Series delivers immediate appeal, with satisfying flavours over an elegant frame. Each wine embodies the grape variety and region in which it was grown.
Grapes from the northern regions of Margaret River: Wilyabrup, Carbunup and Cowaramup, were harvested at ideal flavour and tannin ripeness, fermented then matured for twelve to fifteen months in French oak from a variety of coopers. An excellent growing season has delivered well-balanced wines that will develop gracefully in bottle. Enjoy now to 2026.
A full-flavoured yet finely structured Cabernet of great appeal: black berries, dried leaves and fine gravelly tannin, reflect an outstanding year.
