A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc.
The Moss Wood Cabernet Sauvignon is a deep brick red colour, in bright condition. Showing all the classic Moss Wood aromatic features with Cabernet Sauvignon’s blueberries and mulberries, Cabernet Franc notes of blackberries and violets and Petit Verdot giving sweet musk lollies and dark jubes. Since the Moss Wood Cabernet Sauvignon had such long barrel age, these fruit notes are underpinned by tar, leather and cedar notes as well as a touch of charry oak. These all combine to give the wine a notable intensity making it a complex Cabernet Sauvignons.
Each of the varieties work their magic on the palate, combining to give generous blueberry, blackberry and red currant flavours. The tannins are classic Moss Wood. The requisite balance, smooth and supple velvet texture are present but the tiny yields give great concentration. Everything is rounded out by a subtle oak note, just a little reminder of its 2 years in French oak barriques.
