Vasse Felix 2010 Heytesbury

Margaret River keeps racking up great vintage after great vintage and Vasse Felix winemaker Virginia Willcock keeps turning out out classic version after classic version of Heytesbury, the pioneering Western Australian winery's flagship Bordeaux blend. A cabernet sauvignon-dominated wine that also contains petit verdot and malbec, this has spent 18 months in top-quality French barriques and is a superbly supple wine, boasting restrained power and intense berry fruit beautifully allied to the well-integrated oak. This will undoubtedly cellar well but is temptingly gorgeous right now. $90.
