- ABV 14%
- Closure: Stelvin
Vasse Felix’s Cabernet Sauvignon was the first red made in Margaret River and it has been produced every year since 1972. The 2015 rendition is a blend of 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Malbec, 2% Petit Verdot and 1% Merlot and was matured in French oak (44% new) for a period of 15 months.
Totally opaque black dark red core with a dark red black tinged hue. An expressive bouquet of red and blackcurrant fruits, mulberry and cedary tobacco characters float through the olfactory senses with spicy dried herb and light bay leaf notes also evident. Rich yet refined and elegant the mid weight palate dishes up a combination of red and black currant as well as mulberry fruit that shows terrific persistence. Underlying cedary tobacco characters, subtle dried herbs and spice add further interest. Showing great finesse the finely grained tannins are in perfect harmony with the fruit. Long finish of red and black currant, mulberry, subtle cedary tobacco characters and spicy dried herbs.
Cellar 6-8 years.
Captures the elegance of this great vintage. Doesn't have the density and opulence of the 2014 but there is classic angular structure. Typical graphite, soy and savoury notes with a hint of tobacco leaf with black olive nuance. Classy oak integration and fine-grained tannins. One of the very finest that marks the next statement of Vasse Felix cabernet. Ridiculously cheap for a wine of this quality. Best drinking: Now to 2030.
Ray Jordan – The West Australian
A medium weight cabernet to show more bulkier renditions a clean set of heels. This is a slashing way to present cabernet. Energetic and bright yet fluid and soft. It boasts just enough weight, and power, to build good momentum through the palate but at no point does it press too hard, or for too much. Bay leaf, black olive and blackcurrant flavours are the main conveyors here. Tannin is a light sheet through the back half of the wine. The touch is light, the effect dramatic. Drink by 2035.
