Moss Wood 2015 Wilyabrup Ribbon Vale Vineyard Merlot (Margaret River)

Another of Margaret River's founding wineries, Moss Wood purchased 43-year-old Ribbon Vale Vineyard in 2000. At five years old, there's some bottle age to this wine but still plenty of energy left in the battery. The nose opens with a distinctive cherry and bar soap note, backed by licorice, cigar box and dried herbs. The tannins are powerful, raspy and a touch astringent on the palate, but they nicely juxtapose the juicy, fresh fruit. Drink now–2035. Christina Pickard
