Wine Advocate-Margaret River, Australia - ""Wonderfully aromatic, the 2017 Dirty Boots Cabernet Sauvignon kicks off with scents of sage, bay leaf, blueberries and cassis. It's medium to full-bodied, with firm but ripe tannins that channel the fruit into a long, dry and slightly savory finish...""
The state of Western Australia was home to some of Australia's first winemaking, as early as 1834. Viticulture first took root north of the capital city, Perth, in the southwestern corner of the continent. Despite the region's proximity to the ocean, hot winds from the desert-like interior kept summers baking hot. So Western Australia winemakers were resigned to making some white wines and hearty, fortified dessert wines from super-ripe grapes.
