Press Review

    Moss Wood Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
    92/4/4% cabernet sauvignon/petit verdot/cabernet franc. Hand picked from 52yo vines, matured for 29 months in French oak (15% new). Rippling layers of flavour and texture here. So long that it carries itself over the palate and through into the finish… what a finish! Pedigree and happenstance have collided to create a legend. The 2018 will go down as one of the greatest Moss Wood cabernets ever made, alongside the 2001.

    Moss Wood Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

    BEST JUST GOT BETTER - This is getting just ridiculous. From the time the heavyweights of WA wine started to reveal their wines from the 2018 vintage, it has been a cavalcade of one great wine after another. A few weeks ago, I got pretty excited about the latest Leeuwin Art Series chardonnay. Now, I have another problem, albeit it a good one. Moss Wood have just released their 2018 cabernet sauvignon. And, oh, here's a shock, it is without doubt one of their greatest - dare I suggest, it might be their greatest. Read on for that pronouncement. Winemaker Keith Mugford reckons that 2018 was just about perfect. “If you couldn't make a decent wine from this vintage, you only have yourself to blame." he said. In some ways, the 2018 is the style of Moss Wood that caused slightly negative comments on the earliest Moss Woods, suggesting the wines were nice but wouldn't last. Well, weren't they seriously off the mark? You see. Moss Wood is subtle, refined, understated and almost pretty. The 2018 is so exquisitely perfumed, almost in the vein of a Margaux, and beautifully poised and refined with an effortless length and power all expressed with that typical Moss Wood polish. After sipping my Moss Wood tasting bottle, I took it with me to try with friends later. And it was spectacular, even better on the second day. I reckon if it were possible, I would be enjoying it even more in 40 years time. It is classic Moss Wood that ranks with their best. Is it their best? Yes. As I suspected in anticipation, a great wine from a great vintage. This is a glorious statement from one of the great estates of Margaret River. Classical medium weight in that understated Moss Wood way. Perfectly integrated oak and fine, chalky tannins for support. Leafy cabernet notes on the nose with a touch of light bay leaf and brick dust. The minerally edge to the palate holds the line through to the very long finish. The length on the palate is extraordinary.

    Can a cabernet be any finer, better structured and more engaging? This gloriously composed wine shows crème de cassis, spicy oak, subtle cigar, game and rich floral aromas on the nose, leading to an immensely concentrated palate offering exceptional depth and drive. Offering waves of refined texture and delicious flavours, classically structured by loads of fine tannins, finishing seductively long and gratifying. At its best: 2028 to 2058.

    Sometimes, a wine delivers something so great that it redefines your own definition of the word great itself. This is one of those times. . . . What a triumph! It’s everything you could possibly want from a Margaret River Cabernet, then some!

    . . . What stands out most, as in all great Moss Woods, is composure and evenness of fruit and structure, like the greatest wines from Margaux, which is all finished off here with an extraordinarily long and silky finish. This is something very special from Moss Wood.
