Michael Cooper (1999 Vintage) says
Offering fresh, strong flavours of plums and spice, the 1998 vintage is a fruit-driven style of red. Full-coloured, with a slightly peppery nose, it is vibrantly fruity and flavoursome, with gentle tannins and a delicate, lingering finish. From a wetter year with less 'hang rime' for the grapes, the 1999 is a lighter wine. A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (85 per cent) and Cabernet Franc (15 per cent), matured in French and American oak, it's a ruby-hued, medium-bodied red with a slightly leafy bouquet and vibrant berry/plum flavours, fresh and smooth
