Reviews for 2008 Vasse Felix Cabernet Sauvignon

GTW 95
Australian Gourmet Traveller Wine - Australian Gourmet Traveller Wine, December 2011
A stately elegant yet powerful cabernet sauvignon malbec petit verdot blend built to age. Herb mint and dark-berry aromas shade to concentrated cassis on the palate with firm tannins and some acidity.-Huon Hooke

James Halliday - James Halliday, January 2010
Essencey regional bouquet relying on fruit purity rather than oak to provide an alluring array of aromas; red fruit and cedar are gracefully supported by fine almost silky tannins; elegant long and harmonious to conclude.

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... 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+. -Lisa Perrotti-Brown

Glass-staining ruby. Spice-accented dark berries cherry and violet on the aromatic nose. Deeply pitched blackcurrant and candied cherry flavors show a suave blend of sweetness and tension picking up a licorice quality... Glass-staining ruby. Spice-accented dark berries cherry and violet on the aromatic nose. Deeply pitched blackcurrant and candied cherry flavors show a suave blend of sweetness and tension picking up a licorice quality with aeration. Fine-grained tannins add grip and focus to the long spicy finish. This is structured to age. -Josh Raynolds
