The latest release of the wine that made Moss Wood's reputation, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon doesn't disappoint. Striking aromas of vanilla, cedar and crème de cassis lead into a palate that's packed with fruit, dark chocolate and faint herbal notes that impart a savory edge to the flavors. It's supple and creamy in texture yet powerful and concentrated, with fine-grained tannins that frame the long finish. It's another in a long lineage of top-notch Cabernets from Moss Wood. Drink Date 2017 - 2034
Moss Wood’s flagship wine is a structured beauty with nothing out of place. The gloss of the colour, the florals, blackberries and mulberries infused with black olives, dried herbs and eucalypt; the French oak and the fine-grained tannins seal the deal. Very even and will reward the patient.
The Grand Vin is a very imposing wine with a flavour that drills down deep into the soul of this noble grape variety. Texturally, this is one of the most satisfying Moss Wood Cabernets I can recall. The traction on the palate, made up of sooty tannins and epic skins, is thrilling. The finish is certainly youthful but in no way astringent. The nose heralds the way and points to the future for this wine. It will be a slow-burner, with a long life and along this path it will chant the never-ending song of Cabernet.
