Wine of the Week NZ

Vasse Felix Filius Cabernet Sauvignon 2015, Margaret River, NZD $28

A pure and perfect expression of cabernet sauvignon with blackberry, cassis, cigar box and a suggestion of black olive. A fine-boned and linear red with a lingering finish. Gently drying and not too austere. Should develop very well in the bottle. (Screwcap)
