2008 Vasse Felix Cabernet Sauvignon

This wine promised a great deal and certainly delivered when opened for a dinner with friends.

A strong darkish red colour with an initial crisp almost bitey sensation on first tasting, this proved a popular accompaniment to a red meat dinner. 

The 18 months maturation in French oak showed through in the rather complex body of the wine and its fine balance of berry flavours and light tannins. The initial taste sensation gave way to a more elegant and smooother feel which caused everyone to ask for more please.

I have no doubt that this wine will cellar well for quite a few more years. My only complaint is that I have no more bottles to enjoy.

  1. From a female perspective, I was not keen on the first taste of this wine but I agree that it rapidly improved with further sips. It might avoid this issue if it were decanted and allowed to stand for a time.
