I’m going to come clean: I don’t like cabernet sauvignon. Or at least I didn’t think I did. Too big. Too tannic. Too much.
Then along come these sleek modern cabernets from Vasse Felix and other forward-thinking Margaret River wineries to make me question my life choices. These wines are supple, they're detailed, they’re approachable. And they’re worlds apart from the heavy-set cab savs that I grew up thinking I had to love and cellar for like 100 years.
I’ll admit, I can be pretty biased when it comes to wine. It’s nice to have my biases challenged and, in this instance, absolutely detonated.
