“This is about as close as we get to sublime Cabernet.”...From one of Australia’s most renowned vineyards in a knockout vintage, mature vines and the masterly touch of winemakers Clare and Keith Mugford, it’s a wine which the luckiest of us might still be relishing in 30 years." - Phillip White

"Moss Wood cabernet sauvignon is the single vineyard, Margaret River version of Penfolds Bin 707. Rich in oak and fruit, slippery smooth, crowd pleasing in a general sense and concentrated in its flavour. The question often is: does it need all that oak?

The 2009 version left me slightly cold but the balance is better here. Yes there’s a wealth of slippery, creamy, ultra-smooth oak but the wine’s boysenberried, curranty fruit is right up to the task. This 2010 release has a finesse that the 2009 lacked. Salty, brackeny, gravelly notes extend through the finish and while there is good concentration of fruit flavour here I wouldn’t call it any more than a smidge over medium weight. Fine, elegant tannin. Ageability is assured. This release looks the goods."
