Moss Wood 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon – Cameron Douglas, camerondouglas.com

Points: 95
Rating: Stars

Intensely scented, complex, varietal and pure fruited bouquet. Aromas and flavours of black currants and black berries, whispers of violet, hay and baked bell pepper, fresh tobacco, bacon and plum. Tense, highly textured and dry with firm tannins, acidity and warming alcohol laying the foundation for this wine to age. As the wine opens up in glass the complexity builds with flavours of clove and dry earth minerality then a swing back to fruit and floral leading to a lengthy and persistent finish. Best drinking from 2024 through 2044.

 

Outstanding
