Vasse Felix Cabernet Sauvignon 2020


85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Malbec, 1% Petit Verdot and 1% Merlot. Eighteen months in 67% old and 33% new oak. Sometimes you come across a wine whose first impression you’d wish was bottled so you could spritz it on whenever you need to feel enveloped in complete vinous enjoyment. This is a bargain for a stunning and complex Margaret River Cabernet. The nose is a melting pot of elegant perfumed cassis and blackberry, rose petal, cacao nib, meaty bresaola, a hint of bonfire, dried herbs, and freshly dried potpourri. Firm yet succulent tannins coat the mouth and allow the plushness of the fruit to billow through a well-integrated and consistently paced acid line.
