Margaret River’s stunning run of vintages continues into 2009 for the reds. Vasse Felix have consistently produced one of the best values in Cabernet Sauvignon from arguably Australia’s most reliable region for Bordeaux stylings of the varietal. Winemaker Virginia Willcock has blended 11% Malbec and 1% Merlot for balance and structure, with all fruit adhering to a staunchly “Estate” philosophy, being sourced from the Vasse Felix vineyard in the northern, Willyabrup district of Margaret River. The blend was matured in 100% French oak (40% new, 60% 1-3 year old) for a period of 18 months.
Opaque black dark crimson red colour with deep dark crimson red hue. The nose displays lifted scents of blackcurrant, mulberry, bay leaf, cedar and spicy tobacco. Superb palate possessing both finesse and concentration with all of the wine's components seamlessly integrated. Mouthfilling flavours of blackcurrant, mulberry, cedar, tobacco and spice. Perfectly balanced very fine grained tannins. Excellent length with long mulberry, tobacco, cedar and spice aftertaste.
Very drinkable now or cellar 4-5 years (2011-2016).
The hue is good, although is on the light side; the bouquet is fragrant, yet not especially powerful; it is on the palate that the intensity and length of the fruit takes no prisoners, blackcurrant/cassis, squeaky tannins and a spicy/savoury edge all adding interest and impact. Drink by 2029.
