Moss Wood 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon – Huon Hooke, The Real Review
The colour is very deep red/purple and there are rich, ripe berry fruits on the bouquet, blackberry to dark plum with dark chocolate and cocoa powder overtones, while the palate is full-bodied, rich and dense, with masses of drying tannins. Fabulous concentration and balance. The style is of a riper or warmer-year cabernet, without the leafy notes or much of the bright cassis fruit that the region can deliver. A touch of coffee-mocha on the finish. A solid wine, less detailed than we might expect: a very good Moss Wood cabernet.
