Moss Wood 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon – Neil Sommerfelt MW

Rating: Stars

Another utterly superb Moss Wood Cabernet Sauvignon. This year’s blend includes 8% Petit Verdot and 4% Cabernet Franc. Keith truly is a master of his craft. Still firmly in its infancy this fantastically impressive offering combines power with extreme finesse and sheer beauty. The sublime use of quality oak lends a subtle, supportive note of toasted spice. The heady, wonderfully ripe cassis and blackberry fruit is majestically framed by seductively ripe, shapely tannins that caress the palate right through to the ever so persistent finale. Deep, complex and sophisticated with no one element out of kilter. However, patience will be rewarded. Drink 2014-2025+
