    Moss Wood Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

    Heavenly Cabernet

    . . . the latest Moss Wood 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is as close as can be to the greatest yet in this distinguished line. From the first sniff to the last lick of the lips you will be captivated by its engaging expression of cabernet. Vibrancy, purity and energy burst from the perfectly formed palate.

    A stunning Moss Wood that captures the elements of this vintage perfectly. It's a lighter vintage and so beautifully elegant. Perfumed violets and blackcurrant on the nose. The palate is more towards medium bodied but there is power and intensity here as it extends effortlessly to a very long finish. Shows why this small estate is one of Australia's greatest.

    Deepish red colour with a good tint of purple, and a bouquet of sweet berries, violets, mulberries and cassis. A fragrant, almost floral cabernet, the elegance of the nose reflected on the palate, which is medium to full-bodied and juicy, delicious and finely-textured. A lovely wine, already drinking well, and a lighter vintage for this maker - but gorgeous. (Unfined, but sterile filtered).

    Moss Wood Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

    Delicious cabernet, with an appealing core of sweet, ripe blackcurrant and blackberry with subtle spice, cedar and nutty oak characters. This is a seriously good red wine that can be enjoyed now but promises to be sensational after at least 5-6 years of bottle age.

    Moss Wood Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

    A nigh-on perfect picture of cabernet sauvignon a la Margaret River: medium-bodied but intense and long, opening with cassis and moving on to more savoury/earthy notes as the tannins click in. French oak is present, but has minimal impact.

    Moss Wood Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

    This is a fragrant and fresh Moss Wood with sage and bay leaf aromas, laced through red plums, cherries and redcurrants. The oak registers in a cedary and spiced-chocolate layer and is well integrated. The palate casts a long, sleek shape with quite assertive tannins, carrying fresh and concentrated red plums and cherries in an integrated style. A blend of cabernet sauvignon, petit verdot and cabernet franc. Approachable now, but best from 2026. Screw cap.

    Moss Wood Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

    I was explaining the flavour of this wine the other day to a good friend in the wine trade and, because I was in a rush, I shortened my elucidation to, ‘It’s more Margaux than Pauillac’! This chap being a Bordeaux expert got my drift but to those of you for whom this means nothing here is a more detailed reasoning.In broad brush terms Pauillacs (Châteaux Lafite, Latour, Mouton and the like) are powerful, long-lived and brooding red wines, while Margaux (Châteaux Margaux, Palmer, Brane-Cantenac and the like) are fresher, lighter and no less serious, just more pliable, and fruit-forward. 2016 Moss Wood Cabernet is a honed, delicious, succulent wine and with a sensual texture and serious length and so, unlike recent vintages, I described it as Margaux-like. Lazy I know, but certainly memorable, this term says so much more than just a word and 2016 Moss Wood carries so much more than just one descriptor. It is a fabulous wine (...).
