- Cellar 10 - 12 years (2028-2030)
- ABV 14%
- Closure: Stelvin
A blend of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot matured in French oak of which 14% was new. Shows impressive depth of colour with an impenetrable black dark red core and a deep dark red black tinged hue. Powerful blackcurrant aromas intermix with hints of ripe mulberry and liquorice which are underscored by toasted vanillin cedar, faint notions of tobacco, black olive, traces of bay leaf and spice. The palate possesses terrific richness and composure within an elegant framework, flavours of blackcurrant along with a touch of liquorice subtlety infused with bay leaf gracefully moving across the mouth. Lightly toasted vanillin cedar elements, notions of tobacco, black olive and spicy earth ensue. There’s good flesh to the mouthfeel with super fine, velvet like tannins and beautiful acid line providing the structure. Superb depth with a very long blackcurrant, dark mulberry, subtle bay leaf, vanillin cedar, tobacco, lightly scorched earth and spice aftertaste.
Cellar 10-12 years.
Deep red/purple colour, with a lightly toasty bouquet featuring some smoky oak, quickly giving way to violet and blackberry aromas with a sprinkling of dried herbs; the palate intense and fresh, clean and lively, with brilliant depth of dark and red berry fruit flavours. The acidity is refreshing on the finish and the tannins are firm and upright. This seems to be a more elegant style of Moss Wood, but still concentrated, and a long-term keeper. This is a great Moss Wood cabernet.
The bouquet shows the first signs of development via nuances of spice and earth. The palate is still bracing and fresh, cassis and redcurrant on the same page. These different personas are simply an intermediate stage before the wine moves on to a lingering plateau measured in decades not years. Drink by 2045.
