2020 Vasse Felix Premier Cabernet Sauvignon Reviews

95 Pointz Wine Enthusiast

“Vasse Felix’s self-titled middle range often represents the best value for money, in this reviewer’s opinion. This is both an excellent example of the range’s quality as well as of Margaret River’s distinctive Cab style. Layered aromas of tangy red currant, raspberry, and cranberry are woven with pencil lead, new pavement, and tobacco leaf. There’s a wonderful lift of crunchy currant fruit on the palate, which counterbalances the big smudgy, savory tannins.”

93 Pointz James Suckling

“A medium-bodied red with blackcurrants, sage, and crushed berries. Fine and medium-round tannins. Creamy texture and clean, fruity finish. Real cabernet character. Drink now or hold. A couple of years would make it even better.”

96 Pointz James Halliday

“A marker of great Cabernet is being seduced by the aromas and flavours, which need to be in harmony: everything tucked in neatly, and let’s not forget beautiful tannins matched to fine acidity. Does this fall into that class? Too right it does. Varietal flavours are pitch-perfect and not quite understated, this is Cabernet after all, and the result is a certain elegance and class. A gorgeous rendition.”

“Perfumed notes on the nose, hints of pencil shavings, chocolate, vanilla, and mulberry. Big, intense, and powerful style on the palate.”

2019 Vasse Felix Premier Cabernet Sauvignon Reviews

95 Pointz Wine Enthusiast

“Editors’ Choice”

“Open-knit aromas of red cur- rant, cassis and cherry mingle with more savory and characteristics like eucalyptus, seaweed, iodine, graphite, a whiff of smoke and tobacco leaf. Tannins are fine yet powerful, neatly supporting the juicy currant fruit. A line of fresh acidity is particularly lovely on this vintage.”

93 Pointz Vinous

“This classically style 2019 Bordeaux blend brings together largely Cabernet Sauvignon with Malbec and Petit Verdot plus a splash of Cabernet Franc. It's currently reserved and understated with a beautiful blend of blackcurrant and leathery aromas with a bright lift of violets and superbly integrated oak. A punchy, energetic palate follows with intense mulberry, blackcurrant and cedar flavours with a firm base of tannins. A long, strong finish suggests that time will only make it better.”

93 Pointz Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

“Vasse Felix is a savory house—it's important to understand in order to fully understand the wines, I believe. They are driven by savory, spicy tannin (reds) and chalky, structuring extract (whites). In this cool 2019 vintage, the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon is aromatically detailed, with cassis, mulberry, brine, nori, sun-dried kelp, iodine and five spice. On the palate, while the wine is structured and firm, no tannin can stop the mellifluous flow of fruit through the mouth. An impressive spool of flavor through the finish tells us about the potential this wine has for graceful aging in the cellar. Drink it at any time, but cellar it with confidence for 15 years plus.”

“Clean, elegant liquorice and blackberry nose, with mint, dried herbs, and lush fruit on the mid palate. It's ripe and full, with firm but fine tannins.”
