Vasse Felix Tom Cullity Cabernet Sauvignon/Malbec 2015

750 mL bottle  |   VINTAGES#:  537456

A noble blend of 78% cabernet, 20% malbec and a dollop of petit verdot, conferring ample richness and an authoritative spine: saline maritime acidity and detailed grape tannins, moreish and ripe, attesting to an extraction regime of courage and confidence. Together with extended maturation in French barrique (18 months, 50% new), the structural attributes are impressive. While this full-bodied wine demands patience, one can already detect cassis, lead, cedar, graphite, a herbal potpourri, a swab of black olive and a bay leaf linger, across cedar oak beams. Drink by: 2038. Score - 96. (Ned Goodwin,, Aug. 1, 2019)
