The 2018 vintage can comfortably be described as being one of the greatest, if not the greatest vintage in Margaret River's 55-year modern history (i.e., since 1967). When this 2018 Tom Cullity Cabernet Sauvignon Malbec was released, it was both satisfying and terrifying. The former, because it confirmed everything I had suspected/hoped prior to its release. The latter because it would force me to put my neck on the line and give it the score I believe it deserves. Having seen it blind a number of times in esteemed international company, I am comfortable that this wine more than stands up alongside its counterparts from Bordeaux and Napa in the 2018 vintage. It is a marvelous example of Margaret River Cabernet, in that it offers us red raspberry, pomegranate, cassis and red licorice, alongside pink peppercorns, nori, sun-dried kelp, hints of iodine and earth, and all of it framed by ferrous tannins. It is fresh, it is structured, it is incredibly long. It will live forever. Erin Larkin, Robert Parker Wine Advocate
Deep, bright red/purple colour. Very attractive fresh violet, rose, blueberry, raspberry aromas, some cassis as welll, the oak well tucked in. Lots of floral high-notes. It's intense and firm in the mouth, with a little austerity in its tannins. It's been built to last, no doubt, and is arguably not quite ready. Elegance is notable. A pristine cabernet with a long and exciting future ahead of it, for the patient. (78% cabernet sauvignon, 20% malbec, 2% petit verdot) Angus Hughson, Vinous
