Seller: rarewinemerchant (122) 100%, Location: Artarmon, Ships to: AU, Item: 142180950136 HOTLINE: 0409 121 151 Moss Wood Cabernet Sauvignon 2005 Moss Wood Cabernet Sauvignon 2005 Moss Wood Cabernet Sauvignon 2005 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. 95 points, James Halliday The Wine of the Week concept involves a value-for-money consideration, so reviewing such an expensive wine here is indulgent. But I feel moved to make a statement. This is my idea of a beautiful red wine. Its an essay in elegance and harmony: the flavours build on the palate the more you sip and the wine continues to give more, whereas many modern reds pall rapidly. Perfectly ripened fruit yields aromas of raspberry, blackberry and a subtle trace of mint (of which less is more). It strikes a perfect balance between concentration and restraint, resulting in elegance and intensity, with none of the syrupy, over-alcoholic or extracted mouth-feel of many mod-Oz cabernets. This is cabernet I want to drink, either today, in 25 years, or any time in between. It has 14 per cent alcohol. 96/100; Wine of the Week; Huon Hooke SMH This is a blinder. Its unmistakably cabernet, unmistakably Australian, and unmistakably Margaret River. It smells and tastes of violets, blackcurrant, chocolate, briar and mulberries, the mix of fruit, oak and autumnal/leafy characters perfectly matched and pitched. It works as an elegant wine and it works as a ballsy, fruit-solid wine. It works at the dinner table, and by itself. It has smooth texture and real length, and should drink well either now or whenever you want to drink it. One of the best Moss Wood cabernets I have consumed. Drink: 2009-2021. 96 points.
