[SOLD-OUT] Moss Wood Cabernet Sauvignon 2020



"Another simply sublime edition of this great wine. The volume of fruit was down almost 60% but the small berry influence has added even more intensity and depth, if that is possible with this wine. Interesting point of difference is that the combination is slightly different from previous vintages with 90% cabernet sauvignon, 3% cabernet franc and 7% petit verdot. The petit verdot certainly brings a darker berry influence with slightly firmer tannins. The aromas are a seductively perfumed with a combination of violet and redcurrant with a subtle black olive and mulberry. But the palate, oh the palate, is simply a joy. Smooth graceful lines with fine chalky tannins supply essential definition and support and harmoniously played oak. At the moment it is quite restrained but with age, a treasure trove of delights will be released. It is a wine destined for even greater things. Extraordinary."Ray Jordan, WA Today


"Stellar stuff. This latest vintage will do nothing but enhance its reputation. The blend is 90% Cabernet, 3% Cab Franc and 7% Petit Verdot. Inky dark maroon. The nose immediately suggests that this is a wine of finesse and class. We have plums, mulberries, blackcurrants, tobacco leaves, dry herbs and beef stock. Even at this young stage, we see signs of the complexity that will surely follow. A fragrant, balanced Cab of excellent focus, exceptional length and serious grip. The tannins are abundant, but fine. Easily approachable, even at this stage, it will age deceptively well, for at least 15 to 20 years. A cracking Marg River. Cab." - Ken Gargett, Wine Pilot


"Medium deep crimson. Beautiful blackcurrant, wax polish, hint panforte aromas with vanilla notes. Classical Margert River Cabernet with fresh blackcurrant, panforte flavours, fine grainy/ cedary tannins, underlying roasted chestnut oak notes and linear fresh acidity. Finishes firm and tight with a fine plume of tannin. This has lovely weight and balance with the perfect structure for aging. Drink 2026 – 2040+" - Andrew Caillard, Wine Pilot


"Ruby and purple with a slightly different nose to what I remember from the Moss Wood Cabernet’s of past vintages. There’s a fig leafiness in there, some musky florals, white pepper, baked blueberry and hints of olive that sit alongside blackberry, creme de cassis, fern, tobacco, cedar, tar and smoky charred oak. In the mouth it’s structured, tightly layered and intense in flavour, rushing with rich red, blue and black berries, spiced with clove, cinnamon, anise and hints of green olive. Good concentration and plenty of fruit, with acidity that’s riding a little high at the moment and needs time to settle. Closely knit feathery tannins hold firm and bring serious texture and tension across the arc of the palate and don’t let go. Impressive! It fades slowly and evenly over a long and dry tail that hums with berries and spice. This release has been built for the long haul and will reward those with patience." - Marc Malouf, Wine Worth Writing About


"Red and black fruit, something of an aniseed pastille thing here too, some floral notes, tobacco, cedar, and baking spice. It’s medium-bodied, kind of svelte and evenly weighted, just a little toasty oak, with some black olive and nori savoury elements. the tannin is quiet, and kind of latent, but swish it about in your mouth a bit, and their quality is revealed, especially on the long finish. I think this is going to be a beautiful wine with requisite bottle age, and is likely to rate (even) higher in time." - Gary Walsh, Wine Front
