Moss Wood have an internationally recognised reputation for producing some of the finest examples of Cabernet outside of Bordeaux. Since the Mugford’s purchased the Ribbon Vale Vineyard back in 2000, they have been working tirelessly in the vineyard and in the winery to produce the best Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot they could from this site.
The 2020 Moss Wood Ribbon Vale Cabernet Sauvignon is another masterful Margaret River blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Malbec this is full-bodied and complex, with redcurrant and mulberry fruit flavours running the full length of the palate and the finish has toasty oak and firm but balance tannins.
"95 Points. A lovely bouquet with a complex mix of soft smoky wood and dark berries, crushed violets and sweet tobacco, sweet black olives and bell-peppers with baking spices and clay soil scents. Weighty, itense and dry on the palate, there’s lots of textures from tannins and acidity then contrasting flavours of black berries and plums, black cirrant and tobacco spices. Taut, dry, youthful and needs time. Best drinking from 2025 through 2035."- Cameron Douglas, camdouglasms.com.
"Here we have a real claret style - a highly pure and elegant Cabernet blend with a smattering of other Bordeaux varieties. It opens with bright and appealing aromas of red and black currant fruits with dried herbs in support all well integrated with high quality oak. It’s then mid-weight and poised yet with quite a sturdy structure backed by dark, gravelly flavours topped by a violet lift before delivering a long, sinewy finish. Impressive but needs a couple of years to settle. 93 Points. $76. Drink: 2025 - 2034"- Angus Hughson, winepilot.com.
