2018 Moss Wood Ribbon Vale Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, Margaret River, Western Australia
Deep ruby with a nose of restrained power. Blue and black fruits, with hints of violets, cedar tar and spices. The palate has enormous power and persistence, yet the first impression is of elegance and grace, before finishing with full and ripe tannins.
"Substantially riper and richer than other recent vintages, the 2018 Ribbon Vale Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon shows fewer of the delicate floral notes that characterize the 2017 or 2019, but it shows more weight and concentration. Its raspberry fruit is carried by a medium to full-bodied palate, finishing with firm tannins and substantial length." Joe Czerwinski. Drink to 2030.
