Woodlands Cabernet Merlot Malbec 2008

Remiss of me, I know, but I hadn't previously tried a Woodlands wine.  I vaguely recall Andrew Graham over at the Oz Wine Review commending them, and I'd have to say that he's on the money.  According to Woodlands' website:

"Woodlands is a ten hectare vineyard located in the Wilyabrup Valley of Margaret River. Established in 1973 by David and Heather Watson, Woodlands remains family owned and operated."


Their 2008 cabernet merlot malbec is a good, balanced wine.  Classic cedar and blackcurrant on the nose.  Medium length, with a balanced palate with reasonable persistence.  It was consumed quickly - rarely a bad sign.  In a word, "elegant".  86-87 points (7.1-7.2/10)

Abv: 13.5%
Price: $35
