Vasse Felix Cabernet Merlot 2010
According to some winemakers from the Margaret River, the region is the Divine’s gift to Cabernet. It cannot be denied that the region produces some of the best Bordeaux blends in Australia. This is a generously smooth cigar box, violets and black plum kind of cab merlot, with cranberry, pepper with some vanilla toast. Mouthfillingly juicy fruit with the concentration and enough intensity to please. Short term cellaring might smooth out the tannins or you could enjoy it for the food oriented wine that it is.
