"98 Points. This is a great Moss Wood cabernet." Huon Hooke
It's available! Moss Wood Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 has been released. The 2014 was somewhat of a watershed year for the winery with the cabernet selling out within a month, for the first time in 30 odd years. This 2015 vintage is heading down the same path too, with top reviews already coming in and production down, it again will sell out during May. Huon Hooke was the first to jump on board, giving it a whopping 98 points and writing "This is a great Moss Wood cabernet". Folks, supply is tight, so don't delay your purchase.
"Deep red/purple colour, with a lightly toasty bouquet featuring some smoky oak, quickly giving way to violet and blackberry aromas with a sprinkling of dried herbs; the palate intense and fresh, clean and lively, with brilliant depth of dark and red berry fruit flavours. The acidity is refreshing on the finish and the tannins are firm and upright. This seems to be a more elegant style of Moss Wood, but still concentrated, and a long-term keeper. This is a great Moss Wood cabernet." 98 Points Huon Hooke
"Serious cabernet sauvignon with intense cassis, dried berry, cedar, spice, liquorice and new leather flavours. A firm backbone of ripe tannins suggests good cellaring potential. Slightly closed right now but showing plenty of promise." 95 Points Bob Campbell
