2020 Moss Wood Amy’s
Moss Wood’s entry level Cabernets, Amy’s, is a Bordeaux styled blend that’s produced in an earlier drinking style loaded with generous fruit that shows plenty of flesh. Sourced from the Glenmore vineyard just north of Yallingup it’s a blend of 72% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 10% Malbec and 8% Petit Verdot. Maturation takes place in 228 litre French oak barrels, with no new oak used, for a period of 18 months.
A great entry level Cabernet from one of Margaret River’s most renown estates.
Excellent colour displaying a pitch black heart and a deep dark red black hue. Unfurling from the glass are attractive scents of violets, red to black currant and ripe mulberries which show a perfumed like quality. Vanillin cedar and subtle spicy tobacco notes ensue. Ripe and fleshy yet still youthful is a rich fruit profile of red and black currants, red plums and mulberries. Spicy vanillin cedar, tobacco and infusions of bay leaf are also evident. Polished tannins with a long generously fruited conclusion.
Drink over the next 5-6 years.
