Moss Wood 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon – Huon Hooke,

Points: 97
Rating: Stars

A big, rich, deeply flavoursome red, which is fully ripe and shows none of the leafy herbal notes of cabernet – but then, that is typical Moss Wood. It is full-bodied, dense and rich, with abundant supple tannins and marvellous balance. We tasted a screw-capped bottle alongside a cork-sealed bottle and there was little difference of real consequence. A superb wine, starting to mature but with years ahead of it.
