97 Points Bob Campbell MW

"Dense, rich and ripe cabernet sauvignon with classic blackberry, blackcurrant, cedar, tobacco, and spicy oak flavours. Seamless red with a very lengthy finish. Although accessible now this wine clearly has great cellaring potential. Drink 2016 – 2033"

96 Points James Suckling 

"This has an impressive core of fruit, showing blood orange and red currants, blueberry, red plum and more; plenty of spicy, mocha-scented oak too, then chalky notes, and a little leafy edge. The palate has a fine grain, dense and supple; tannins are smooth, even and dense. Long future, ripe and bright, but needs more time."

97 Points David Prestipino 

"This vintage is the 40th and possibly one of Moss Wood’s best, with vibrant violet aromas and an unerring symphony of complex ripe fruit, oak, and acidity. Over the decades, these cabernets from Keith and Clare Mugford have rivaled the best in the land, speaking distinctively of the terroir they’re grown in. This vintage is no different."

 

On the palate this wine is a classic Moss Wood Cabernet Sauvignon.  The fruit flavours are a combination of mulberry, cassis and dark plum, with background notes of dark chocolate and tar.  The structure is firm, with bright acidity and long, round tannins, that provide good concentration and texture but allow a finish that isn’t gritty or drying, more powdery and pencil shavings.

    Food Pairing:
    Pulled pork, lamb ragout, beef brasato with pappardelle, lamb shwarma.
