Moss Wood 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon – Josh Raynolds – Vinous.com
(aged for 30 months in French oak barriques, 20% new): Brilliant ruby. Powerful, assertively perfumed aromas of fresh black and blue fruits, cured tobacco, cedary oak and potpourri. Sappy, densely packed and energetic on the palate, offering vibrant, spice-tinged cassis and mulberry flavors and an emerging mineral nuance. Finishes alluringly sweet and extremely long, with fine-grained tannins coming up slowly and adding grip.
