Moss Wood 1996 Cabernet Sauvignon – eRobertParker Wine Advocate #127 Feb 2000 – Robert M. Parker, Jr.
Cabernet lovers looking for a compelling example of this commonly encountered varietal should check out the expensive but profound 1996 Cabernet Sauvignon. Opaque purple in color, with a striking bouquet of olives, cassis jam, beef blood, minerals, earth, and new wood, this massive, super-concentrated Cabernet Sauvignon should prove to be a great classic from down under. It is oozing with flavor extraction, has high tannin, and cuts a formidable path on the palate. Anticipated maturity: 2003-2020. Bravo!
