Tasting Notes

Colour and condition: youthful deep, plum red hue; bright condition.

Nose: a classic young Cabernet nose, with lively and fragrant aromas of black and red currants and satsuma plums. It has a complex back ground displaying white pepper spice, earth and tar and some very soft oak notes. The longer it spends in the glass, the more intense it becomes.

Palate: the young Cabernet theme continues with a mouthfeel that is full bodied and generous, with concentrated black fruit flavours, sitting over a firm but balanced structure of acidity and tannins. It combines great length and an appealing juiciness for satisfying early drinking.

Led by cabernet sauvignon, Amy’s beguiles with its joyous, sweet, berry-laden aroma. The fleshy, deep palate reflects this vibrant fruitiness. However, serious, grippy tannins wash through the fleshy fruit,…

Moss Wood 2014 Amy’s – James Halliday – The Wine Companion

A blend of cabernet, merlot, petit verdot and malbec overflowing with a rainbow of cassis/blackcurrant redcurrant, plum and mulberry on the bouquet and palate alike. So much is the impact of the fruit, it buries the tannins, but allows the French oak to add yet another flavour. Why not tonight?

Cellaring Notes

This is a well-balanced and flavoursome young wine, enjoyable now, especially with full flavoured meat dishes. However, it has the structure to be aged for the short term, up to 5 years.
