Ranked #16 of 65 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon from Wilyabrup
Deep red colour with a good tint of purple. The aroma is fresh and clean and loaded with both red and black fruits, with lifted floral/violet nuances. The wine is full-bodied and attractively flavoured, with tight, firm but ripe tannins, good fruit sweetness and a lovely long finish. No sign of greenness. Excellent cabernet. (4% cabernet franc, 4% petit verdot)
Drink: 2017 to 2042

The latest release of the wine that made Moss Wood's reputation, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon doesn't disappoint. Striking aromas of vanilla, cedar and crème de cassis lead into a palate that's packed with fruit, dark chocolate and faint herbal notes that impart a savory edge to the flavors. It's supple and creamy in texture yet powerful and concentrated, with fine-grained tannins that frame the long finish. It's another in a long lineage of top-notch Cabernets from Moss Wood.

Power and density meet violet fragrance and varietal definition in this vintage, built around a full and deep core of blackcurrant
and mulberry fruit, well supported by cedar and dark chocolate oak. Vibrant acidity and fine, confident tannins bolster a long and
full finish. Drink 2019 - 2029.
