Winery notes (2019 Vintage)
“The Premier Cabernet Sauvignon of Vasse Felix. This wine’s distinctive style possesses all the hallmarks of the finest Margaret River Cabernet; elegance, generosity and ageability. Made every year since 1972, it is Margaret River’s archetypal Cabernet Sauvignon.

Super fragrant “Old Spice” perfume with nutmeg, star anise, orange, Pimento, jasmine, vanilla, musk and cedar. With old cellar charm, this vintage expresses more earthy, forest-like elements, wild mushroom and dark berry fruit, than ocean scents. The palate is so powerful and fluid. It flows from buoyant fruit sweetness with a savoury overtone, into a super-fine, tightly woven tannin profile that is powdery and dry but not intense. It is rich fruit power, but not heavy.”

95/100 & Editors’ Choice, Christina Pickard, Wine Enthusiast (2019 Vintage)
“Open-knit aromas of red cur- rant, cassis and cherry mingle with more savoury and characteristics like eucalyptus, seaweed, iodine, graphite, a whiff of smoke and tobacco leaf. Tannins are fine yet powerful, neatly supporting the juicy currant fruit. A line of fresh acidity is particularly lovely on this vintage. Drink now–2032.”

95/100 Andrew Caillard MW (2019 Vintage)
“Medium-deep crimson. Classical cassis, dark chocolate, roasted chestnut aromas. Inky-textured wine with beautiful blackcurrant, mocha, cedar flavours and fine grainy/ al dente tannins. Finishes firm and minerally. Medium-powered wine with very good fruit complexity, vigour and structure.”

94/100 Decanter (2019 Vintage)
“Clean, elegant liquorice and blackberry nose, with mint, dried herbs and lush fruit on the mid palate. It’s ripe and full, with firm but fine tannins.”

93+/100 Erin Larkin, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate (2019 Vintage)
“Vasse Felix is a savoury house—it’s important to understand in order to fully understand the wines, I believe. They are driven by savoury, spicy tannin (reds) and chalky, structuring extract (whites). In this cool 2019 vintage, the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon is aromatically detailed, with cassis, mulberry, brine, nori, sun-dried kelp, iodine and five spice. On the palate, while the wine is structured and firm, no tannin can stop the mellifluous flow of fruit through the mouth. An impressive spool of flavour through the finish tells us about the potential this wine has for graceful aging in the cellar. Drink it at any time, but cellar it with confidence for 15 years plus.”

93/100 Angus Hughson, Vinous (2019 Vintage)
“This classically style 2019 Bordeaux blend brings together largely Cabernet Sauvignon with Malbec and Petit Verdot plus a splash of Cabernet Franc. It’s currently reserved and understated with a beautiful blend of blackcurrant and leathery aromas with a bright lift of violets and superbly integrated oak. A punchy, energetic palate follows with intense mulberry, blackcurrant and cedar flavours with a firm base of tannins. A long, strong finish suggests that time will only make it better.”
