Xanadu Cabernet Sauvignon DJL Margaret River Australia 2015

Happy Holiday! No, not that one, you silly, it’s officially “Husband Appreciation Day”, “Chinese Language Day”, the start of Passover AND “National Cheddar Fries Day”. Party on, Wayne…! 

Guess we’ll start a “National 94-POINT Cabernet for $15 Day” -- whatcha think??? And’re not even...imbibing! Yet!

*** DO NOT miss this one --- Xanadu makes the ASTOUNDING 96-point $16 chardonnay we offer from time to time and their Cabernet is just as ROCKING. Do what you must to put this in your cart -- c’mon!! $15, 94-point Cab? What are we even doing??? Xanadu usually sells out in hours!

A true pioneer of the region with a long history of producing wines with distinct character that embody all that is the Margaret River. Xanadu was established by Dr John Lagan, an Irishman who arrived in Margaret River in 1968 and was inspired by the pioneering spirit of the region. These excellent wines are just being discovered in the U.S.A., and we are pumped to be one of the VERY FIRST to bring them in!! UNREAL VALUE here!

There’s a pure, clean black currant note here, with a dark, smoky, meaty note and THEN the mocha kicks in, with a coffee spice, smoky oak component,too. Very savory and long, as well --- just OUTRAGEOUS at our price --- party on Garth! While it lasts…!

A medium to full-bodied Cabernet with plenty of depth offering blackberries, dark chocolate and cassis. The pristine fruit and fine tannins combine to produce a very complete wine, distinctly Cabernet with an elegant structure and a wonderful persistence of fruit.

Perfectly approachable in its youth, this wine will comfortably cellar for several years.

Technical Details

Country: Australia
Region: Western Australia
Appellation: Margaret River
Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon
Vineyard: 50% of blend was Estate grown on our Boodjudup and Stevens Road vineyards in the Wallcliffe sub-region of Margaret River. The remainder was predominantly sourced from two Margaret River Grower vineyards (45%) in Wilyabrup and Wallcliffe. A small portion (5%) of Cabernet selected from a mature Geographe vineyard complemented the final blend.
Aging/Cooperage: The fruit was crushed and destemmed then fermented in static fermenters at 26°C for 5 – 7 days. A significant portion (30%) was left for a period of extended maceration on skins followed by a gentle pressing adding plushness and a savoury textural element to the wine. The various batches underwent MLF in a combination of tank and barrel before 14 months’ maturation in a selection French oak barriques (30% new).
Alcohol: 13.50%
PH: 3.48
