Your Wine Guy says:
 
Moss Wood has once again produced a very classy Cabernet Sauvignon with incredible depth of flavour.
The 2012 shows intense fruit notes of
berries and plum with some floral notes that combine with some toasty, spicy oak. The palate displays intense flavours of red berries and hints of chocolate along with well integrated toasty oak and ripe, fine tannins. A stunning Cabernet from yet another great vintage in the Margaret River region. This wine should be decanted to help release all the aromas and flavours held within.

The winemaker says:
 

Colour: Deep brick red.
Nose: Initially the nose is slightly closed, presenting a complex combination of red currant, tar and leather. After a few minutes breathing, the fruit aromas lift, adding mulberry and violets. In the background there is a scented oak lift of toast and black pepper-like spice. A classic “small-crop” Moss Wood Cabernet Sauvignon.
Palate: The theme of the palate is concentration and generosity. Ripe red currant flavours combine with some earthy flavours and fill the front and mid-palate. These sit over full body and excellent viscosity, the product of ripe, concentrated tannins, from both fruit and oak. These give the wine considerable length, leading to a finish of dusty, toasty oak. – Moss Wood
