Moss Wood 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon – Ray Jordan, The West Australian
I have been having a lot of fun lately. No surprise really, because this is the time of the year when some of the big names start to strut their stuff and I get to taste some of the great wines -not just of Australia but of the world. One of the most Interesting is the latest Moss Wood cabernet sauvignon from tho 2015 vintage. You might recall that last year I gave my first 99-point score. This year I am only a point behind, but there will be some who prefer the slightly less opulent but no less extraordinary 2015 to the 2014.
Moss Wood 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon
Another exceptional cabernet sauvignon from this wonderful vineyard. An impressive follow-up to the outstanding 2014. This is
slightly less opulent and lower in alcohol. Yet it retains the plush fruit density of the estate with that effortless elegance on the palate. Grainy
tannins with a slightly sinewy feel. Less perfumed and showing more varietal graphite than some previous vintages. A wonderful
statement of cabernet at its best. It will handle very long cellaring. 98/100 (Best drinking: 2020 to 2045. Ale 14%)
