2017 Vasse Felix 'Tom Cullity' Cabernet Sauvignon Margaret River
Winemaker Notes: The 2017 Tom Cullity Cabernet Sauvignon is a lovely, translucent ruby. On the nose, savory tobacco, earthy forest and nori-like ocean breeze. Delicate red berry notes move into savory tones of cherry pip, mushroom, white clay, brie rind and tamari. A floral fragrance of violets frames this elegant vintage. A restrained and ethereal rendition of Margaret River Cabernet, the body is plush and shapely, with lovely red berry fruit characters and super fine, talc-like tannins of unbelievable length. Graceful and sophisticated with a savory core, the delicate complexity of perfumes linger on the long, drying finish.
Blend: 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Malbec, 1% Petit Verdot
James Suckling - "Complex aromas of berries, spices, chocolate and walnuts with some dried spices, such as nutmeg and cinnamon. Full-bodied with ultra-fine tannins and beautiful length, with honed tannins that drive you deep down in the center of the wine. Wonderfully manicured."
Wine Enthusiast - "The 2017 vintage of this winery's top-tier red was on the cooler side for Margaret River, resulting in extra elegance alongside power and polish. Waves of aromas and flavors flow in the form of plum, currant, black olive, tar, leather, tobacco leaf and other savory herbs. A sanguine note sits at the back. The full-figured palate shows lovely freshness and poise. The tannins are chalky, chiseled and well-structured. Cellar Selection"
