Vasse Felix Filius Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Margaret River, Western Australia, AustraliaThis youthful, compact wine requires a lengthy decant now, or better yet, a few years in the bottle. 85 percent cabernet sauvignon is joined with 13 percent malbec and two percent petit verdot before one year in French oak (13 percent new). Savoury and brooding, with dusky cherry, blackcurrant, anise, pipe tobacco, dark chocolate and a slick of mint on the full bodied palate. Tannins are sticky and the end is warm and cedar lined; this structural, tightly knit wine needs time to mature, or a pairing with lamb or beef now.Tasted: 16 March 2018Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
