We see the 2000 as being closest in character to the 1980 and the 1990 Cabernets and, in some ways, a combination of the two. There were differences from the earlier vintages. There was more rainfall during the 1990 growing season. Although there was a similar amount in 1980, it came later. In all three cases, we see the wines as soft and fruity with generous flavours and gentle, fine tannins.

The amazing thing about (winemaker) Keith Mugford and his Moss Wood vineyard is that almost regardless of the year’s conditions, he still produces a cabernet wine with a silken ooze of pure fruit flavour, as he has here. Blackcurrants and cedar carried along a creamy train, with olivey bitterness on the finish.
