Vasse Felix equals high quality Margaret River Cabernet and this 2nd tier label would have many producers wishing it were their top label. This is just the third vintage release of a Cabernet Sauvignon under this label. 86% Cabernet Sauvignon & 14% Malbec. Like the Cabernet Merlot, this 2016 is ripe and generous and could have you thinking you should drink now, but be assured it will last for many years. It is a terrific wine.


Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"Deep, savoury Cabernet aromas of blackcurrant, dark cherry, damp earth and cedar mingle with a spicy complexity care of the vibrant Malbec portion. The palate is luscious and juicy upfront, the dark berry fruit is complemented by savoury elements of beef stock and dried woody herbs. There is a wonderful length of flavour as the palate transitions to a fine, textural and dusty drying finish in classical Cabernet style."


Reviews for the 2015 vintage below…


95/100 Huon Hooke (2015 Vintage)
"Deep red/purple colour with a very attractive, clean and pure, fruit-driven aroma of cedar, tobacco, cassis and violets. It's medium to full-bodied and intense, with gentle tannins which are not too pervasive, and an overall impression of superb balance. The aftertaste is elegant and balanced and more-ish. A ripping cabernet."


5 Stars & 95/100 Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review, November 2017 (2015 Vintage)
"A pure and perfect expression of cabernet sauvignon with blackberry, cassis, cigar box and a suggestion of black olive. A fine-boned and linear red with a lingering finish. Gently drying and not too austere. Should develop very well in the bottle."


93/100 Toni Paterson MW, The Real Review, November 2017 (2015 Vintage)
"An eminently satisfying, engaging wine with great depth, fruit purity and fragrance. Dark cherry flavours plus a hint of tamarillo. There is an endearing coolness to the wine, coupled with restrained power. Beautifully fine tannins. Fabulous value."


92/100 Gary Walsh, The Wine Front, September 2017 (2015 Vintage)
"Dusty gum leaf and gravel perfume, baking spices, and a mix of red and black berries. Medium bodied, again firm and dusty, subdued yet flavoursome, excellent bone structure and a lovely mouth-perfume, and a clean long finish. Trim and fresh, and very pleasant to drink."
