Winemaker Notes

Deep maroon in color with some brick red hues. The nose shows classic aromas of cassis, pretty herbal notes and lifted perfumes immediately reminiscent of roasted coffee, with some deep concentrated blackcurrant, fragrant dried oregano and subtle vanilla bean from maturation in toasted oak barriques. This wine is well balanced with silky blackcurrant fruit flavors upfront, carried along the palate by a fresh acid moving into dried herbal flavors and firm, slightly drying tannins.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JH 94
Australian Wine Companion
Deep colour; potent, brooding, multi-layered aromas and flavours, the structure provided by ripe cabernet tannins and, to a lesser degree, French oak.
WS 90
Wine Spectator
Smooth and open-textured, with classic violet-tinged currant flavors at the core, persisting nicely against fine-grained tannins. Best from 2009 through 2013. 200 cases imported.

Vasse Felix, Margaret River, Australia
Video of winery
Wine Enthisiast Magazine 2017 Wine Star Award Winner for New World Winery of the Year.

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.

Margaret River

View all wine

Home to some of Australia’s most elegant and long-lived red and white wines, Margaret River is situated in the farthest reaches of Western Australia. Relatively warm and dry, the region is cooled by breezes from the Indian Ocean. Margaret River takes some inspiration from Bordeaux, producing top-quality Cabernet Sauvignon with firm structure, mouthwatering acidity, balanced alcohol and notes of herbs and spice. Complex, age-worthy Chardonnays are another regional specialty. Also common here are refreshing blends of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, as well as earthy, aromatic Bordeaux red blends.

Cabernet Sauvignon

View all wine

A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon is sometimes referred to as the “king” of red grapes. It can be somewhat unapproachable early in its youth but has the potential to age beautifully, with the ability to last fifty years or more at its best. Small berries and tough skins provide its trademark firm tannic grip, while high acidity helps to keep the wine fresh for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in temperate climates like Bordeaux's Medoc region (and in St-Emillion and Pomerol, where it plays a supporting role to Merlot). The top Médoc producers use Cabernet Sauvignon for their wine’s backbone, blending it with Merlot and smaller amounts of Cabernet Franc, Malbec, and/or Petit Verdot. On its own, Cabernet Sauvignon has enjoyed great success throughout the world, particularly in the Napa Valley, and is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious and sought-after “cult” wines.

In the Glass

High in color, tannin, and extract, Cabernet Sauvignon expresses notes of blackberry, cassis, plum, currant, spice, and tobacco. In Bordeaux and elsewhere in the Old World you'll find the more earthy, tannic side of Cabernet, where it's typically blended to soften tannins and add complexity. In warmer regions like California and Australia, you can typically expect more ripe fruit flavors upfront.

Perfect Pairings

Cabernet Sauvignon is right at home with rich, intense meat dishes—beef, lamb, and venison, in particular—where its opulent fruit and decisive tannins make an equal match to the dense protein of the meat. With a mature Cabernet, opt for tender, slow-cooked meat dishes.

Sommelier Secrets

Despite the modern importance and ubiquity of Cabernet Sauvignon, it is actually a relatively young variety. In 1997, DNA revealed the grape to be a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc which took place in 17th century southwestern France.
