Joseph Moda Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot, McLaren Vale 2012 $80-$86 Value: fair

This is a massive wine, a Penfolds homage perhaps, with dominant oak which suggests it should be left alone for several years. The colour is very dark and toasty barrel oak dominates the bouquet. It’s very full-bodied and firmly tannic, and demands patience. Cellar for five to 18 years. 15 per cent alcohol. 93/100 – Huon’s Wine 360

Food: aged hard cheeses

Stockists: Balmoral Cellars, Sydney; Boccaccio Cellars, Melbourne
