2013 is the 40th anniversary of Moss Wood’s first vintage and another in the dream run of Margaret River’s successive, high quality vintages. Colour and condition are deep, brick-red hue in bright condition. On the nose are classic, bright mulberry and cassis fruit notes, sitting over the almost lazy generosity and complexity of Wilyabrup – cedar, leather and tar. 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 finsh that isn’t gritty or drying, more powdery and pencil shavings.
The high quality vintage shines through this wine, illuminating its intricate, multifaceted complexity; almost, but not quite, juicy cassis fruit is swathed in perfectly balanced French oak and gently ripe tannins. The only problem will be keeping your hands off it.
