Smoky and statuesque

Moss Wood Wilyabrup Cabernet Sauvignon 2015, Margaret River, AUD $128

This a great vintage of this famous wine. Smoky oaky scents give way to blackberry, violet and dried herb aromas, the palate intense and full-bodied with a touch more restraint and elegance than some recent vintages. A statuesque cabernet which can be cellared long term. (Screwcap)
