Black fruit, violet, lilac, spice and rose petals. M tannin, nicely balanced. Drinkable now but with time will become even more elegant.

2012 today's mystery player, dry, savoury and persistent. Almost tangy.

Absolutely the best pound for pound Cabernet you can buy. A voluptuous wine, but maintains varietal integrity. #topnotch #napakiller

I'm a fan of Vasse Felix's Chardonnay but am underwhelmed by their other varietals. 2012 vintage, 14.5% alcohol. Blackcurrant,oak, tannic with a hollow middle. Doesn't compare favourably with either old or new world cabs at a similar price.

2012 vintage, 14.5% alcohol, £18. Restrained Cabernet with coffee notes, neither with the fruitiness of the New World nor the finesse of a good Bordeaux. Prefer Vasse Felix's whites.
