Moss Wood 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon – Nick Stock, “Good Wine Guide 2013” goodfood.com.au
All guns blazing with the blockbuster 2009 vintage. This has a sense of thorough ripeness and is dripping with promise – still very young. Plenty of cedary oak, rich, dark and brambly berry fruit aromas, dark chocolate and rich plum essence here, graphite too. The palate is full of plump, fleshy texture and slippery tannins unfurl effortlessly, delivering nutty flavours amid dark cherry and plum fruits. Toasty oak off the back palate; a grand wine in the making.
