James Halliday Rating:95
95 Points James Halliday
Brilliant colour; lovely sweet, ripe blackcurrant fruit is swathed in fine oak on the bouquet; the palate has powerful, pure, perfectly ripened Cabernet flavours, well-handled oak and plenty of tannins. Drink to 2013.

92 Points Robert Parker
The opaque purple-colored 1998 Cabernet Sauvignon Sandown Vineyard displays a dense nose of cassis and jammy cherry fruit intermixed with licorice, tobacco, tar, and dried herbs. Thick, powerful, full-bodied, and moderately tannic, this wine will benefit from 2-3 years of cellaring and keep for two decades.
