Moss Wood Ribbon Vale Cabernet Sauvignon, Margaret River, Western Australia, 2013
Grape variety, Cabernet Sauvignon
Deep brick red hue colour in bright condition, together with a deep and complex nose combining rich red currant, bright mulberry and cassis fruit notes, together with tobacco, earth, tar and cedar; complex, with great power.
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.
