Continues the outstanding recent run of vintages for Moss Wood. This is, without doubt, one of the very best in this long and distinguished line. For a wine renowned for its elegance, this is one of the most elegant of them all. Yet the palate has great power and intensity. Bright and brilliant red hues. Beautiful sweet, leafy fruit and silky, fine powdery tannins, all with perfectly weighted oak. Classic red berry and cassis. Best drinking: 2020 to 2045; Rating: 98 Points; Ray Jordan
Hand-picked, destemmed to open fermenters with cultured yeast, 7 days fermentation and 7 days post-ferment maceration, matured for 28 months in French barriques (30% new). A powerful, full-bodied cabernet that still manages to achieve finesse thanks to the perfect balance of fruit, oak and tannins. An autocratic portrait of cabernet, and of photographic reality. Drink By: 2043; Price: $125.00; Date Tasted: 11 Jan 2016; Alcohol: 14%; Rating: 97 Points; James Halliday Wine Companion
Dense, rich and ripe cabernet sauvignon with classic blackberry, blackcurrant, cedar, tobacco and spicy oak flavours. Seamless red with a very lengthy finish. Although accessible now this wine clearly has great cellaring potential. Drink: 2016 to 2033; Rating: 97 Points; Bob Campbell MW
This vintage is the 40th and possibly one of Moss Wood’s best, with vibrant violet aromas and an unerring symphony of complex ripe fruit, oak and acidity. Over the decades, these cabernets from Keith and Clare Mugford have rivalled the best in the land, speaking distinctively of the terroir they’re grown in. This vintage is no different.

This has an impressive core of fruit, showing blood orange and red currants, blueberry, red plum and more; plenty of spicy, mocha-scented oak too, then chalky notes, and a little leafy edge. The palate has a fine grain, dense and supple; tannins are smooth, even and dense. Long future, ripe and bright, but needs more time. Best from 2021. Screw cap. Rating: 96 Points; James Suckling
