Ray Jordan (The West Australian) 95 points. "Clearly one of the best cabernets yet released by Driftwood. Generous, sweet fruit characters perfectly augmented by sinewy tannins and fine-grained oak. Bay leaf and powerful blackcurrant aromas. The palate is firmly structured with great balance and poise. Focused to a very long finish." RJ 30 May 2020.

It's ripe and polished with smoked cedar wood slipped hand in glove into pure, ripe cassis, chocolate and peppermint. It's pretty much impossible to review, or drink, this wine without uttering the word 'seductive'. To 2035. 95 points." JH. TASTING NOTES Colour Deep red purple heart with a bright red rim....
James Halliday 95 points. Dark crimson red. Dark berry aromas with chocolate, rosemary & thyme notes. Dusty tannin backbone layered with ripe berry fruit and dried herbs. The palate is complex with a long savoury finish. WINERY NOTE: The best fruit from our oldest Cabernet Sauvignon sites was hand picked into crates before being de-stemmed and crushed into closed fermenters and inoculated. The ferments were pumped over with aeration twice a day; temperature was held around 25°C. The wine was then pressed to new & used French barriques for Malo-lactic fermentation, allowing a soft integration of the grape and oak tannins. The wine was...

Wine Advocate 95 points. Gary Walsh for the Wine Front, 95 points. Wine Advocate Prettier and more aromatic than the very good 2015, the 2016 Cuthbert Cabernet Sauvignon hints at violets and mint on the nose and adds hints of cherries to the cassis fruit. Medium to full-bodied, it's supple, almost silky on the palate, with a finish that's simultaneously mouthwatering and firmly tannic. It should drink well for at least a decade. JC Sep 2018. You’d not find many people called Cuthbert these days, much like Gary, in a way. Blackcurrant/blackberry, liquorice, dark mint chocolate, pepper and bread dough. Medium to full-bodied, deep fruit,...

"The 2017 vintage was one of the milder vintages in WA. The latest Moss Wood captures this vintage perfectly and is without doubt one of the more restrained and tightly framed Moss Woods of recent years. Not the opulence of 2014 or the firm power of the 2016. Yet it retains the elegance, perfume and soft approachability that is Moss Wood. And hidden within is a wine that I suspect will still be drinking beautifully in 30 years." Make sure you decant it even now before drinking. Published 25th April, 2020 Ray Jordan 97/100 "Very attractive aromas of blue fruit, as well as red cherries and redcurrants with cedary, savory nuances, stones,...
“Opens with an ethereal perfume that’s classically cabernet. The palate is medium to full bodied and so graceful and elegant. The focus on tannin management in this vineyard has really paid of with this exceptional wine. Fine minerally tannins with a degree of light bay leaf and blackcurrant emerging. A super wine.” Nov 2019 Ray Jordan
James Halliday 96 points. "Compact and taut, with firm varietal references across a veil of cassis, bay leaf, thyme and in these parts, olive. A chassis of verdant herb, dried and strewn across a long finish defined by youth, a little unresolved oak and the voice of immense potential." JH COLOUR Deep Crimson with a purple hue.

James Halliday 95 points. "The tannins at this stable, evidenced by the top tier reds, are illustrious. This is no exception. fine-grained and woven across a seam of sage, bouquet garni and gravel. Texture, so fine. Currant, plum, pencil shavings and graphite, too, yet it is the structure uber alles that draws me in and keeps me coming back for another glass. A tapestry of complexity."

Intense dark fruit flavours of blueberry and currants on the palate with liquorice and dark chocolate. Firm tannins on a long finish. Char grilled rib eye with root vegetables and seasonal greens. The 2015 Vintage had dryer than average winter conditions resulting in a less vigorous spring and subsequent reduced yields across all varieties, this was followed with mild days and cool nights which resulted in a near perfect slow ripening pattern for both red and white grape varieties with fantastic natural acid...
