    Winemaker's Notes:

    "The blockbuster 1999 Cabernet Sauvignon Art Series (86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Petit Verdot, and 3% Malbec) exhibits a Chateau Margaux-like precision. There is terrific purity, finesse, and length as well as medium to full body and intensely layered flavors nicely buttressed by acidity and tannin. As the wine sits in the glass, aromas of cedar, licorice, blackberries, and currants emerge. This sensational Australian red requires 2-3 years of cellaring; it should age for two decades."
    -Wine Advocate

    The color is bright deep garnet with a little youthful purple around the edges. The bouquet is composed of fragrant aromas of sweet currant fruit carried and lifted by a cedary oak underpinning but not over shadowing it. Again currants are predominant on the palate with warm flavours of fine to medium texture. It fans out to a rich and quite voluminously fruity finish backed by gentle tannins.
