Deep crimson with vivid purple hues.
The wine exhibits ripe cassis, red plums and salted liquorice aromas. High notes of cedary oak and violet add further complexity and frame this wines underlying graphite like minerality.
The palate unfolds in a myriad of layers of red fruit with dark chocolate nuances further enhanced by subtle sweet oak characters. The long and flavoursome finish is well supported by powder-fine juicy tannins.
This finely structured Margaret River wine will continue to improve over the next 5–7 years.Download Tasting Notes
This wine has been crafted utilising fruit sourced from three separate blocks on the estate: Blocks 3 and 4, two premium blocks of 25-year-old Cabernet Sauvignon vines and Block 5 Merlot; the latter block planted in 1987. A small amount of Cabernet and Malbec from the neighbouring property of Abbey Vale, also in the heart of the Yallingup region, features in the 2013 blend.
All of the constituent vineyard parcels were fermented separately for this wine using a variety of techniques. These wines were matured for 18 months in 30% new and 70% seasoned French oak barriques. From these parcels we have strived to blend a wine that has great depth and intensity of fruit and speaks strongly of the premium cabernet program at Deep Woods Estate.
