As you may imagine, of all the varieties, Cabernet scoring 97 Points with the major critics (James Halliday, Huon Hooke, Jeremy Oliver, Wine Front) are the most sought after. Despite over thousands of reviews there are still relatively few that climb the mountain that is 97 Points. What we have here is the StarDozen: 97 Point Cabernet Collection featuring 4 bottles each from 3 renowned producers. This is a rare and extremely limited opportunity.

The StarDozen consists of the following:

4 bottles        Hardys HRB Cabernet Sauvignon 2015
4 bottles        Wynns Coonawarra Black Label Cabernet Sauvignon 2013
4 bottles        Leeuwin Estate Art Series Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Hardys HRB Cabernet Sauvignon 2015
in D670. Hardys has been making regional blends since 1865, so this simply follows Thomas Hardy's prescription. He, however, couldn't go to Coonawarra or the Frankland River, these two regions blended with McLaren Vale 150 years after the edict. The colour is deep but vibrant purple-crimson, and the full-bodied palate has the black-fruited power of a weightlifter and the balance of a high wire walker. It is one of those wines with a 100-year life stamped on it. Drink by: 2055; Price: $40.00; Date Tasted: Jan 2017; Alcohol: 14%; Rating: 97 Points & Special Value Star; James Halliday; James Halliday Wine Companion

Wynns Coonawarra Black Label Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 
Deep, young purple/red colour, very fresh looking - and smelling. Fruit-driven blackberry, raspberry and blackcurrant nuances, with negligible herbal high-notes. The wine is intense and powerful yet also very elegant - moreso than the 2012 - and the fruit does all the talking. Strong but super-fine tannins. The wine has perfect balance in all respects: oak, tannin, acid and extract as well as flavour. A great wine. Drink 2017 to 2045; Rating: 97 Points; Huon Hooke; Real Review

Leeuwin Estate Art Series Cabernet Sauvignon 2013
Deep red/purple: an outstanding colour in depth and hue. The bouquet is clean, fresh and alive, with bright black fruit and violet aromas, touches of cedar and toasty oak, the palate very deep and concentrated, with lush fruit and abundant tannins, which counter-balance the fruit and sweetness. A powerful yet elegant cabernet with a very long and distinguished future ahead of it. An outstanding, profound wine. Drink: 2019 to 2041; Price: $68.00; Alcohol: 13.5%; Rating: 97 Points; Huon Hooke; The Real Review
