Moss Wood 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon – Patrick Haddock – Wining Pom

Points: 95
Rating: Stars

Elegance over power in 2011 and all the better for it. This shows varietal and regional traits with equal aplomb. It oozes black currant and cocoa powder, some crushed olive and integrated, lacquered oak. It feels like a smooth Mercedes cruising down the autobahn leaving a lasting taste of black fruits and spice. Tannins are cuddly and comforting, acidity firm and the length of flavour is as long as aforementioned autobahn. Great drinking.
