MW RV 15 Merlot close up

Moss Wood Ribbon Vale 2015 Merlot – Huon Hooke, The Real Review

Points: 95
Rating: 5 Stars

Deep red colour with a strong purple tint. The bouquet is savoury, complex and yet still youthful, with raspberry undertones and hints of foresty, earthy, undergrowth savouriness. This continues on the palate which is full-bodied, softly-textured and fleshy despite a plentiful load of tannin. The weight and gravitas of this wine are excellent, the texture is supple enough for it to be drinking well now, although it will also age well. An outstanding varietal merlot.
