Moss Wood 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon – Matthew Jukes Top 100

Rating: Stars

There are always a few one-sniff-and-you’re-in wines in the 100 Best, and this year ‘07 Moss Wood didn’t even stop to say hello before lining up on the grid in the early days of assembling this 100. Several tastes later, it cemented its position forever because ‘07 is a very special vintage from this esteemed property. There is a nobility of flavour which underpins all of the expected grandeur and intensity of fruit, and the length and quality of tannins are a wonder to behold.
