This is a single-vineyard wine at the pinnacle of the endeavors of Vasse Felix. It opens with red fruits in the redcurrant and red-cherry zone, as well as fresh red and purple flowers with some deeper notes of blue fruit. The palate is the star though. The way that the malbec entwines itself around cabernet's linear tannins and enriches the wine without fundamentally changing its shape is genius. A supple, fresh and commanding Margaret River red. Best from 2022. Screw cap.

It's not the deepest or darkest of wines at first but give it time to breathe and the reach and power is something to behold. It tastes of blackcurrant and camphor, bay leaves and black olives, smoky oak applied as an infusion rather than as anything terribly overt. Flavour: most certainly. Tannic power: oh yes. Explosive length: most definitely. Time will be this wine's friend. Alcohol 14.5%. Drink By: 2039. (Aug 2018)

Wine Front,
I couldn't see the fuss at first - and then it hit me. It's a blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Malbec and 4% Petit Verdot.

It's a blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Malbec and 4% Petit Verdot. It sees 62% new French oak and while there's oak to be tasted here, the fruit has largely soaked it all up. It's a cracking wine. It seems light at first, both in colour and flavour, but as it breathes it blossoms and once you've spent time with it then it really begins to boom. The power is all under the bonnet; there's nothing particularly flashy about it. It tastes of camphor and blackcurrant, mint, anise, black olive, bay leaves and smoky oak. Tannin is a kind of crescendo of its own, though it's not an island: there's fruit here, gloriously ripened, picked just before it went too far. Length here is quite outstanding.

This is only the second vintage of Vasse Felix's top tier wine, the first was released during the winery's—and the region's—50th anniversary in 2017.

This is only the second vintage of Vasse Felix's top tier wine, the first was released during the winery's—and the region's—50th anniversary in 2017. A blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Malbec, 4% Petit Verdot, it offers aromas of red currant, mocha, sea spray, smoke, potpourri spice, green olive and graphite. The oak is there—tight-grained and a tad flashy—but it's a string to the bow rather than the whole orchestra, and it will settle with time. Overall, it's elegant, complex and should age remarkably well. Drink through 2039.

The wild blueberry and blackberry flavors are intense, set on a tight frame, with accents of bay leaf and black pepper, tightening the velvety grip on the finish. Shows terrific focus and concentration. Should be exciting... The wild blueberry and blackberry flavors are intense, set on a tight frame, with accents of bay leaf and black pepper, tightening the velvety grip on the finish. Shows terrific focus and concentration. Should be exciting to see this evolve further. Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec. Drink now through 2035. – MW
