VASSE FELIX Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

(Margaret River, Australia) $27

You know when you take rosemary, herbs, cracked pepper, salt, and olive oil and make a paste and slather it all over a leg of lamb and roast it, and when it’s done, there’s that charred bit of lamb-herb crust in the bottom of the pan sitting in warm meat juices, and you pick it up with your fingers and eat it? That’s a perfect savory moment. And it reminds me of the savory deliciousness of this wine. The Margaret River in far western Australia is famous for sleek cabernets with a dark cocoa and foresty character. Vasse Felix makes one of the best. And it tastes like it costs more than it does.
