Watershed Awakening Cabernet Sauvignon - Margaret River

Vintage: 2010 Region: Western Australia
Type: Reds
Winery: Watershed
Tasting Notes:

On the palate, the dense velvety texture is complemented by cigar box, black olive notes followed by fine silky tannins from 18 months maturation in French oak barriques.

This wine can be enjoyed now or with careful cellaring will develop for the next 8 to 10 years.

Swept all before it in '12 with seven trophies and six gold medals, and hasn't lost the vibrancy of its youth. It is not a powerhouse, rather it is elegant, medium-bodied and very long, its cassis fruit delicately framed by tannins woven through high quality French oak. - 98/100 - James Halliday - Australian Wine Companion
