Moss Wood 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon – Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
A compelling rendition of the variety; the gloriously expressed bouquet shows cassis, dark plum, olive and spicy oak characters with a lovely violet overtone. It’s impressively weighted and dense on the palate, offering terrific fruit intensity and power, while remaining refined and classically structured by fine chalky tannins. Built for the long haul. At its best: 2023 to 2042.
