Moss Wood Ribbon Vale 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon – Fergal Gleeson, greatwineblog.wordpress.com
Masters of Margaret River – Moss Wood
This wine is made using the same techniques but the grapes are sourced from the Ribbon Vale Vineyard about 1.5 kilometres away. This features slightly more prevalent tannins that coat the tongue and has a hint of tarry, leafy flavour going on. It’s a little darker and more powerful. You could call it a sensual beast if your mind works like that. From a quality, cellaring potential and enjoyment perspective there’s less than a fingernail between it and the flagship.
