“The 2015 Scotsdale Cabernet Sauvignon is a potent, cassis-laden wine. It also shows classic cigar box characters, offering hints of cedar, vanilla, tobacco and mint. It's medium to full-bodied, supported by fine-grained, silky tannins that end in a flourish of soft dustiness on the long finish.”
“Howard Park's entry-level 2015 Miamup Cabernet Sauvignon features notes of dried sage and bay leaf on the nose. In the mouth, it's medium to full-bodied, with juicy currant flavors, fine-grained tannins and a juicy, mouthwatering finish. It seems to have an extra level of concentration and length when compared to its predecessor.”
Howard Park - Wine Enthusiast
In “The Wine Enthusiast Guide to Australian Wine by Region and Style,” Christina Pickard explores the winemaking regions and various styles of grapes in Australia. As far as “bright, bouncy, approachable light-bodied reds” go, Pinot Noir is “the most revered variety,” according to Pickard. Pinot Noir is grown in several locations throughout Australia. Heading west to the Great Southern, HOWARD PARK is one of Pickard’s choices from that region.
Howard Park - Decanter
“Custard apple nose and a hint of burnt toffee. Fresh-fruited, with texture and crunchy acidity. Long and creamy with spicy oak on the finish.”
“No barrel fermentation or lees working, the two varieties having a close natural affinity with each other. Citrus and green pea marry with passionfruit and gooseberry, citrus the lead player. One of those wines made for consumption, not nerdy wine conversation.”
