Moss Wood Ribbon Vale Cabernet Sauvignon 2018 – Ray Jordan, The Weekend West Australian
Such a beautifully balanced cabernet. The key to this vineyard has always been tannin management. This is spot-on. Sure, there are tannins, but you want that with cabernet, right? There’s a minerally, slightly ironstone character threading through it with leafy blackcurrant and, slightly, back olive nuances. Dry savoury finish with a touch of bay leaf. Outstanding wine from an outstanding vintage. In fact, might well be the best cabernet yet from this vineyard.
