The Howard Park Distinguished Sites are crafted to highlight the distinctive regional and vineyard characteristics of Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz from our best vineyard sites in Margaret River and the Great Southern, the two premier West Australian grape growing regions.
Deep garnet-purple colored, the Scotsdale Cabernet Sauvignon presents quite a floral scented nose with notes of violets and lilacs over a core of crushed plums, blackberries and cedar plus a hint of vanilla-laced chocolate. Medium to full-bodied and taut in mouth, it has loads of tense, black fruit and spice flavors framed by a firm level of grainy tannins and crisp acid before finishing with great persistence. Drink it 2017 to 2024+.
