1998 Greenock Creek Roennfeldt Road Cabernet - 100 pts!
Since availability is extremely restricted I'll keep my notes brief for the limited production approximately 60 cases perfect 1998 Cabernet Sauvignon Roennfeldt Road. It is a 100% Cabernet Sauvignon made from a 60-year-old vineyard that spent three years in neutral French oak. The wine possesses the concentration of the greatest classics ever produced in such Bordeaux vintages as 1945 1947 1959 1961 and 1982. This is a full-bodied red with a finish that lasts well over 60 seconds. For its size and concentration it is surprisingly not heavy just super-endowed. The Cabernet Sauvignon needs 2-3 more years of cellaring and should drink well for two decades. Unfortunately quantities are extremely limited for this spectacular world-class Australian red. RP
