Winemaker's Notes:

The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon release is deep maroon colour with a slight purple hue. The nose shows a stunningly complex purfume, with a level of integration that makes the wine difficult to pull apart. Layers of blackberry and blackcurrant fruit mingle seamlessly with hints of dried herbs and candied orange. The fragrant spicy oak sits beautifully in the background. Succulent blackberry and cassis fruit flavours provide a ripe density to the palate while the oak spice adds a savoury edge. The structure is fine and firm with a freshness of acidity that makes the mouth water and the rich, dusty dry tannins help create a wine of great power, length and persistence.

About Vasse Felix:

Planted in 1967, Vasse Felix was the first vineyard to be established in the Margaret River wine region of Western Australia.

Family owned and operated by the Holmes a Court family, Vasse Felix is internationally recognized as a leading Margaret River winery, restaurant and cellar door and is found in the heart of Margaret River's famous sub-region, Willyabrup.

Long growing seasons, ancient soils and cooling sea breezes from the Southern and Indian Oceans provide the Vasse Felix vineyards with ideal viticultural conditions to craft consistent, elegant and complex wines with pronounced varietal character and aroma.
