2011 Moss Wood Cabernet Sauvignon – Review by Huon Hooke – huonhooke.com (May 2014)

Rating: Stars

Deep red colour with a purple tint. Quiet bouquet with lots of savoury oak-derived scents, with a little black olive and roast meat overtone. It’s rich and fleshy, deep and full-bodied, with lashings of fleshy smooth tannins and high extract. This is a rich, savoury wine which has developed some secondary characters already, and displays excellent density, flesh, concentration as well as softness. Lots of tannins, but they’re remarkably soft. It’s a classic Moss Wood. A cabernet with great potential. Rated 95
