Moss Wood Cabernet Sauvignon 2005
The Moss Wood 2005 Cabernet has a pure voluminous fruit statement of perfumes of violet, fruits of the forest, mulberry, blueberry and blackcurrant aromas ? the palate is a statement of vibrant dark fruits which fill the palate from front to back. There?s tight structure, balance and opulence (though it?s not soft and plump) with flavours jumping out and grabbing you by the throat. The oak flavours and the tannins sit seamlessly at the back, giving the wine near-perfect balance.
Peter Forrestal comments that this is an exceptional Moss Wood Cabernet, wildly fragrant with intense, fine blackcurrant and dark plum flavours, fleshy, velvety texture, and neatly integrated fine, ripe tannins on a finish that lingers. It is tightly structured and quite firm in the mid-palate at present although it is showing some beguiling succulence that marks it as a wine with a huge future.
A classic, pure, autocratic portrayal of cabernet, opening with a degree of reticence but revealing more and more along the length of the palate, gaining in velocity near the finish and into the aftertaste. - James Halliday, The Australian Wine Companion
