Vasse Felix

Cabernet Sauvignon, 2006

Australia Red

Margaret River 75cl

2006 was a very difficult vintage in Margaret River (2007 fabulous). I tried this wine with the winemaker recently and thought it quite a triumph for the vintage. But having a long look at it, at home now and it's not very appealing. Fresh cassis and mint on the nose, quite funky and meaty too and signs of greeness as it opens up. Acidity is really quite high, there is some nice cassis fruit, but it's quite vegetal, and a little unclean and smokey. Not up to the usual high standard.
