Moss Wood 2006 Moss Wood Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon (Margaret River)

This is Margaret River Cab at its best: silky and Claret-like but with the extra flesh of the New World. Pipe tobacco and cedar flow together seamlessly into a long, cool finish. Delicious now, and should age gracefully through 2020.

Moss Wood 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon (Margaret River)

Operative words to describe this wine might include seamless and harmonious. There’s such wonderful integration of fruit and oak that it’s difficult to pick this wine’s flavor components apart—it’s a whirl of cassis and cedar, yet restrained; full-bodied, rich and dense without being heavy. Long and velvety on the…

Moss Wood 2008 Moss Wood Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon (Margaret River)

The tannins are fully ripe, giving the impression of great suppleness in the mouth, while the flavors blend plummy, fruity elements with meaty, savory ones. The finish is long and harmonious, suggesting ample longevity…

Moss Wood 2010 Amy’s Red (Margaret River)

Compact and sturdy, this robust blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Malbec and Merlot is relatively simple, yet satisfying. Bold cassis fruit joins with earthy, tobacco notes and hints of vanilla to finish with dry intensity and promising length. Drink 2015–2020.

Moss Wood 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon (Margaret River)

Deep black fruit notes on the nose go a little raisiny with air, but there are enough pleasant tree/earth aromas to distract you. On the palate, hickory smoke flavors mesh nicely with sweet fruit; tannins are soft and plush. Finishes medium-long, with juicy berry and cherry flavors.

Moss Wood 2003 The Amy's Blend Cabernet Sauvignon (Margaret River)

The “blend” in the wine’s name refers to the fact that the grapes come from two vineyards: Glenmore (66%) and Montgomery Brothers (34%). Fruit on the nose is very concentrated, borderline syrupy or pruny. Moderate in size; the palate offers black plum and blackberry flavors. Very good, though you’d more likely guess…
