94 Points - Robert Parker

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. I tasted the 1999 Cabernet Sauvignon Art Series several months ago and again rated it 94+. It is a gorgeous Cabernet that is much richer and more multidimensional than the 2000.

Region

The Margaret River - the go-to place for world-class Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay. A region of less than 5% of the country’s vines has arguably become the most admired with many of the ‘hottest’ winemakers choosing this beautiful region to show-off their talents. We are proud to exclusively offer you some of its brightest stars including Flowstone, Watershed and Nocturne to name a few.
