Moss Wood is a name synonymous with top quality wines and it’s their Cab Sauvs which have a cult like following. And I can see why after trying this sample bottle I was kindly sent from the Moss Wood team. Thank you!
This 2015 was released on the 1st of May 2018. The 2015 vintage was a rather uncanny vintage for Moss Wood as it was so alike to the 2014 vintage by way of similar temperature, rainfall, season length and ripeness.
The majority of the wine is made up of Cabernet Sauvignon however there’s a small hint of Cabernet Franc (4%) and Petit Verdot (1%) in the blend.
So what’s it like? It’s ageing beautifully and I have no doubt it’ll be enjoyed for years to come.
It’s an intoxicating deep purple-red colour in the glass. Dark black and blue berries, cedar wood, vanilla and all spice come through on the nose for me. In the mouth it’s extremely well balanced. It’s both bold and elegant at the same time with a nice loooong finish. Simply beautiful to drink.
This wine was sent to me as a sample, I was under no obligation to post about it.
