Mossback Chalk Hill Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Lovely dried chile, macerated dried herbs and smoky orange peel aromas greet the nose followed by some sweet, candied vanilla notes and a base of dark plummy fruit all topped with a perfumey note of flowers. Some early acids snaps this to attention and lends it great focus in the mouth. The flavors in the mouth are simpler than the nose but quite attractive in their own right, all red currant and faintly blueberry tinged with a nice edge of earth and wood spice. This is very well put together, nice acids which might be high for some palate, ripe yet firm tannins, all wed to a medium full bodied frame. The finish is perhaps a touch short, and this could probably improve a bit over the next 1-3 years, gains a bit of weight on the mid-palate and length but it's drinking well even today. Really quite delicious. 90pts
