2019 Moss Wood Amy's Cabernet Blend
This wine is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot, and Malbec. Deep, brick red hue, almost blue notes; bright condition. There is good volume and lift, with an array of aromas expected from this blend, with all varieties making their presence felt. Cabernet Sauvignon dominates, so its blueberries and violets are clear, dark berry and jubes, black currant and red fruit, white pepper spice. The complex notes typical of a Cabernet blend fill out the background with cedar and tobacco and despite being aged in exclusively old barrels some soft oak as well.
As expected from the nose, the red and dark fruits dominate and fill the mouth, giving the wine tremendous length. They sit over a firm but balanced structure, with acidity that is lifted, ensuring the fruit flavours are lively, full body gives good density and mouthfeel and on the finish, the tannins provide an astringency that doesn’t disrupt, being smooth with no furry or bitter edges.
