VASSE FELIX 2014 TOM CULLITY CABER­NET SAU­VI­GNON AND MALBEC

Robb Report (USA) - - Perfect 10 -

“Land­ing on U.S. shores this month from Western Aus­tralia, this blend of Cab and Malbec ($165)—only the sec­ond time it’s been made—is one of my new dis­cov­er­ies. The grapes used for it are from cut­tings of the re­gion’s orig­i­nal vines, planted in the late 1800s, and they thrive in the con­sis­tent clime of Mar­garet River where Vasse Felix has its es­tate. The wine has enough acid to age well but sips sa­vory and smooth now, with notes of co­coa.” —JAN­ICE O’LEARY
