- Closure: Cork
Notes Sourced from Greenock Creek...
This wine seems a touch lighter, and is more audaciously leafy and minty than previous vintages. It even lets loose whispers of eau de cologne mint and wintergreen, perfect cabernet descriptors in the trendy cooler areas, but not usually so evident at Greenock Creek. The bouquet is still very smooth and polished, with the usual deep well of blackberry and blueberry simmering and glowering beneath the less stolid decorative perfumes that spring up as the wine gets air.
In the mouth, it’s a lithe and sinuous affair, elegant and supple. Its smooth, silky texture seems polished to a high sheen. The leafy greens evident in the first rush of bouquet rise again in the finish, but the wine remains in beautiful balance. It leaves the palate singing, the gums bristling for food, and the salivary glands gushing in response to its fine-grained tannins and strapping acidity. I’d let this one settle for another couple of years, but it’ll drink very well into the next decade. 89++ points.
The outstanding 1999 Cabernet Sauvignon emphasizes cassis fruit intermixed with loamy soil and herb characteristics. Sweet, long, and substantial, it should drink well for 10-15 years.
