Thursday, June 9, 2016 - This bottle of Moss Wood rates as my best bottle ever from Australia alongside a Clonakilla Shiraz/Viognier in a very different style. My first bottle about 10 years ago (I can't find the TN) was disappointing with a sombre brooding complexion and very firm tannins but this bottle was really singing. Very deep colour with some bricking visible while pouring. Expressive nose of mature red fruit with pencil, balsamic and mineral hints. Quite full bodied palate and harmonious showing bright but mature red fruit with a lively plum note, smooth texture, more balsamic and minerals, fresh juicy acidity and ripe tannins on the finish. Very Bordelais in fact but perhaps a bit fuller and more up-front than most of those but by no means short. Excellent.
