Intense blackcurrant and black cherry fruit, with
complimentary coffee and chocolate aromas. These above earthy
hints of sage, bay leaf, mushroom, truffle and venison.


Juicy and fine upfront with dark cherry succulence and a
savoury dark chocolate sensation, akin to black forest cake.
Vibrant fruit is carried with the bright acidity and attractive
tannins building to the dry finish with lingering perfume

Growing Conditions

'Son of' the Vasse Felix 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.Another text-book vintage in Margaret River with consistent,
almost rhythmic temperature patterns throughout the ripening
season, resulting in excellent balance and physiological ripeness
of fruit. Reasonable yields were obtained despite a handful of
blocks being exposed to heavy storms in Spring reducing their
cropping potential, but overall quality is excellent.'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, a
style renowned for its elegance and power. All fruit parcels were
vinified and matured individually before grading post maturation
to create a regional expression of the vintage.


Dark maroon and black cherry.
