Wine Of The Week
Moss Wood 2012 Ribbon Vale Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot, Margaret River – $56
Classy red that’s driven by a strong Cabernet Sauvignon influence to give classic blackcurrant and cedar flavours together with a suspicion of dried herb and olive characters. Best after decanting. Don’t serve the wine too cold. (Screwcap) Score: 95 ★★★★★ – view on bobcampbell.nz
