Vasse Felix 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon blend

Dark red with a ruby hue. Subtle but incredibly complex fragrance with blueberry, a hint of blackcurrant fruit, floral violet notes and a subtle twiggy, Australian bush quality. Light antique and mocha oak nuances complement the dark fruit. Succulent yet fine with raspberry pip flavour and a hint of blackcurrant, leading to an abundance of fine grained tannin which stretch long and relaxed. A berry coulis tang with floral and earthy lines run through the length of the palate before a dry fragrant finish of exceptional poise and persistence.

Very dry wine.  Tried it just before dinner on its own, and then with food during dinner.  Found it too dry both ways.
