This premium Cabernet (with a touch of Cab Franc and Merlot) is more primary and dark-fruited when compared to Moss Wood’s Ribbon Vale Cab. It’s also more complex: a melody of black and purple fruit, spices, florals, tomato leaf and umami. While it’s set up for a long life, it’s also more approachable in its youth than Ribbon Vale. Tannins are tight-reined but sit supportively behind the silky fruit rather than charging to the front. A picture of grace amidst power.
