Product Overview

"Filius" translates to "son of" in Latin, reflecting the relationship between this wine and the Vasse Felix Cabernet Sauvignon, the estate's most historic red wine.  Filius is a more approachable, opulent interpretation of Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon.  It carries the structure, power, and tannins of classic Cabernet in an earlier drinking, more forward style from fruit sourced from each of the Vasse Felix vineyards.

The 2017 Vasse Felix "Filius" Cabernet Sauvignon offers intense aromas of black currant, blueberry, and mocha, with finer notes of dusty earth and woody perennial herbs as they mingle with hints of nori, dried forest leaves, and wild mushrooms. It's juicy on the palate, with an entrance of black currant, raspberry, and pot pourri that builds to earthy complexities and fine dry dusty tannins which serve to frame the fruit. A comfortable, soft, juicy body and tannin profile finishes the wine fresh and long.

Varietal Composition: 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Malbec, 4% Petit Verdot
