Moss Wood 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon, James Suckling, jamessuckling.com

Points: 95
Rating: Stars

This is a fragrant and fresh Moss Wood with sage and bay leaf aromas, laced through red plums, cherries and redcurrants. The oak registers in a cedary and spiced-chocolate layer and is well integrated. The palate casts a long, sleek shape with quite assertive tannins, carrying fresh and concentrated red plums and cherries in an integrated style. A blend of 91% cabernet sauvignon, 5% petit verdot and 4% cabernet franc.
