This has intense redcurrants and hints of red liquorice with a cedary edge to the nose, too. The palate unfurls a very smoothly layered and structured take on elegantly powerful cabernet with a fresh, mouthwatering ride to the juicy, red-fruit finish. Drink or hold. Screw cap.

The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon is a bit leafy and simply Ribena-like on the nose. Hints of baking spices join cassis on the medium to a full-bodied palate, but this seems a bit more open-knit and loosely structured compared to the two previous vintages.
Drink Date 2019 - 2028

This wine expresses the distinct regional profile of Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon and the site characters it takes from the Vasse Felix vineyards, with a focus on Wilyabrup. It was the first red wine produced in Margaret River and has been made every year since 1972. Cabernet is a robust variety ideally suited to Margaret River's climate and deep, well-drained soils.

Colour
Ruby with a brick tint.
Nose
A complex savoury nose embedded with dried twigs, mushroom, soy, kelp, cowhide, peanut husk and cacao. The savoury fragrance gives way to fruit cake notes, with orange peel, red gum flower and concentrated blackcurrant combining to form an alluring bouquet.
Palate
A plump entrance and fruity core lead to building fine, ripe tannins. A line of fresh red-berry tang, reminiscent of dried cranberry and blackcurrant flavours, is followed by notes of dry sweet biscuit, chocolate, iron and spicy oak.
