The Leston wines come from the Margaret River vineyard, Howard Park's most northern and warmest site. This 2007 Howard Park Leston Cabernet Sauvignon is a clean wine, tasting of red- and blackcurrant fruit, true to the expected varietal characteristics. Fruit flavours dominate, as oak remains in the background. Surprisingly, however, the fruit is a bit lean and green, from this warm vintage. Is the yield too high?
