Miles Mossop 2014 Cape Winemakers Guild Maximilian Cabernet Sauvignon (Stellenbosch)

Cellar Selection

Winemaker: Miles Mossop. This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon starts off closed and shy, but slowly, with time, reveals itself to be more like a butterfly that is beginning to emerge from its cocoon. With another decade to two of life ahead of it, it currently offers tight, spicy blackberry, plum and mulberry on the nose, with tons of earthy herbs and cedary spice acting as framework. It's medium-plus in weight, yet boldly structured and fruited, with more intensity and fruit concentration on the palate than the nose suggests. Gripping tannins lend a firm mouthfeel, with lingering notes of toasted oak, pepper and blackberry bramble on the close. Hold until 2025 and enjoy through 2033. Lauren Buzzeo
