The 1999 Cabernet Sauvignon is richly aromatic, featuring ripe berry, fresh green leaves and earthy characters. Forward fruit flavours include dried cherry, plum and blackberry. The well-integrated oak provides background notes of vanilla, maple and buttered toast. Spicy tannins give the wine good structure and a medium-long finish. The wine is approachable on release and will continue to drink well for at least five years.
