Regular price £695.00

"Deep garnet in color with a slight purple in the rim, Moss Wood's 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon opens with notes of crème de cassis, blackberry tart and anise with nuances of cloves, cedar, pencil lead, menthol and dark chocolate. Medium-bodied with oodles of opulence and spice on offer in the mouth, it has a gorgeous velvety texture, just enough freshness and great length." Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW

"A beautifully concentrated bold and ripe nose that has a lot of classy cedary oak and a core of cassis, dark cherry, blueberry and sweet spices, really nicely integrated; some gently earthy notes too. Great definition on the palate, really structured for the long haul. Deep and rich with plum and dark cherry flavors, cassis and mulberry too. Needs time, best from 2020. Screw cap." James Suckling

"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." James Halliday

"You do not have to be Nostradamus to predict that 2012 Moss Wood (Grand Vin) was going to be a stormer. In fact you only had to come along to a Roadshow event last year because the 2012 Moss Wood Amy’s was being poured and it showed such class and charm that it telegraphed the calibre of this vintage to all who came under its spell. Now that its leader is among us we can see that the 2012 is an amazing standard for one of Australia’s more revered Cabernet Kings. Everything about this wine from tiny sub-region of Wilyabrup (the bull’s eye of Cabernet quality in MR) is restrained. The scent is pungent but not showy, the flavour is delivered soto vocce but resounding and the finish is like a massive electrical storm flashing and rumbling in the distance. This is one of the most stylish and complete wines ever released under this label." Matthew Jukes
