Moss Wood Ribbon Vale 2018 Merlot – Ray Jordan, Wine Pilot

Points: 97
Rating: Stars

A vintage that produced some spellbinding wines and this is right up there with some of the best. This is high class merlot displaying power and poise. The structure and combination of oak fruit and tannin is excellent. Leafy merlot with a trace of black fruits and dark plum. The palate has a grainy texture accentuated by the chalky tannins. This is a merlot that makes quite a statement.
