Winemaker Notes

The 2008 release is a deep red with a brick red/maroon hue. The aroma is intensely varietal and savory with a strong base of black currant fruit supporting layers of lifted pot pouri, violets and Margaret River's distinctive dried sage and bay leaf characters. These aromas are further enhanced by a lick of lovely spicy, vanillan French oak. The wine enters the mouth elegantly with velvety tannins caressing and coating the front palate. Juicy and vivacious raspberry and red currant fruits explode on the mid palate with hints of sweet toasty oak and a honeyed tobacco flavor. The fruit and oak flavors are lifted and carried by a bright and tight mineral acidity with runs through a core of characteristic sinewy Cabernet tannins. The finish, loaded full of red fruits, cool menthod, violets and chocolate oak, is long, chalky and dry.

92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Malbec

RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Of the same blend is the 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon, revealing a deep garnet-purple color and pretty perfume of cassis, violets, espresso, cassia and dried herbs. Crisp, structured and very fine, this rich, full bodied vintage gives layers of fruit and spice in the very long finish. Drink it 2012-2019+.
W&S 93
Wine & Spirits
Constricted at first, this is a powerful cabernet with energy to spare. The gragrand red plum and strawberry flavors develop out of a dense, compacted core, their sappy richness balanced by fresh acidity. As the wine evolves with air, it yields scents of the coastal forest - eucalyptus and cactus - that add to its disctinctive flavor. Decant a bottle for Cantonese spare ribs.
WE 91
Wine Enthusiast
Vasse Felix is making boldly flavored yet balanced Margaret River wines epitomized by this Cabernet, which features cassis and mint aromas, bright fruit-driven flavors that manage to avoid jamminess and a firm, tannic finish. Drink 2013-2020.

Vasse Felix, Australia

Vasse Felix is Margaret River’s founding wine estate and was established in 1967 by regional pioneer Dr Tom Cullity. Pristine isolation, twin oceans and ancient soils make Margaret River a wine paradise - the ideal environment for growing world-class Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay. The wines are grown in Vasse Felix’s four vineyards situated throughout Margaret River, then estate-made and bottled within the state-of-the-art Vasse Felix winemaking facility. Vasse Felix wines are recognised benchmarks in Margaret River and Australia, and the Estate is one of the country’s draw-card winery destinations. Vasse Felix has four beautiful vineyards located in selected sites throughout Margaret River, including the region's oldest vineyard our Home Vineyard in Wilyabrup. Each Vasse Felix vineyard site has been selected for its unique soil structure, topography and microclimate. The best suited grape varieties have been matched to each vineyard, and specific rows and blocks have been planted to correspond with the above factors. All wines are made and bottled within Vasse Felix's beautifully equipped winemaking facility, enabling full quality control of every bottle. Every parcel of fruit is kept separate from the time it is harvested, through its unique fermentation style and maturation, creating precise, site-expressive wines. This approach enables traceability back to each individual vineyard block. With this visability, the viticulturists and winemakers can work more effectively with the soil and vine structure to refine and improve quality, beginning in the vineyard.
