Mosswood Ribbonvale Cabernet Sauvignon

Variety: Cabernet Sauvignon
Region: Margaret River, WA
Vintage: 2017

A typically dark Cabernet Sauvignon brick red hue; bright condition. The classic Ribbon Vale Cabernet Sauvignon notes of red currant and tar are brightened by scented mulberry and violet notes.  That said, this wine also displays the complex earth and leather notes we see in the cooler years.  There is also just a light touch of spicy oak to round things out.   The classic Ribbon Vale structure is still evident and it has a solid tannin structure.  However, the blue and red fruits give a generous mouthfeel, dare we say even an almost Moss Wood-like balance and smoothness.  There is good length and the flavours run all the way to the end where the oak rounds things out nicely. It will take between 5 and 10 years to see the first impact of the aged characters but for those who prefer their wines fully mature, we recommend it be cellared for at least 25 years.
