Moss Wood, Cabernet Sauvignon




From the winery:

(2009 description) 


Initially the nose is slightly closed, presenting a complex combination of red currant, tar and leather.  After a few minutes breathing, the fruit aromas lift, adding mulberry and violets.  In the background there is a scented oak lift of toast and black pepper-like spice.  A classic “small-crop” Moss Wood Cabernet Sauvignon.


The theme of the palate is concentration and generosity.  Ripe red currant flavours combine with some earthy flavours and fill the front and mid-palate.  These sit over full body and excellent viscosity, the product of ripe, concentrated tannins, from both fruit and oak.  These give the wine considerable length, leading to a finish of dusty, toasty oak.
