Voyager Estate Cabernet Merlot 2008

90+ points

Margaret River, Western Australia. 13.6%

I stopped buying Voyager cabernet after the 2004 vintage. Their quality was undeniable but stylistically they were heading towards a hefty Californian style. But this is a breath of fresh air, great (albeit youthful) flavour with a lovely freshness and vitality. I wasn’t surprised to see they have moderated their alcohol level too.

Well done. Seriously good WA cabernet blend.
