Howard Park Leston Cabernet Sauvignon
From memory, the 2007 Howard Park Leston Cabernet Sauvignon, from Margaret River, was well received by the wine scribes on release. It certainly has vibrant redcurrant fruit, but lacks depth of flavour, which is the big drawback. The acidic finish dominates, which I find strange, given it was such a hot vintage in WA. Maybe the grapes were harvested very early to avoid the heat.
