VASSE FELIX Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

(Margaret River, Australia) $45

I am shocked that this Cabernet costs $45. It’s a phenomenal wine—very savory, with beautiful bolts of pure cassis and notes of espresso laced with crema. The tannin is commanding yet fine, almost velvety. Super alive in the glass, it’s sleekly long, and just plain delicious. I suppose I should not be shocked because Cabernets from the Margaret River are the best values going among the world’s top-notch Cabernets, and they are all about finesse, not muscle. If you’ve never had a Margaret River Cabernet from far Western Australia (one of the remotest wine regions on earth), Vasse Felix is definitely the wine to know, for this winery planted the region’s first commercial Cabernet vineyard in 1975.  (14.5 % abv)
