The prodigious 200-case lot of 1999 Shiraz Creek Block (made from 63-year old vines) is aged in new and old French oak. The aromas of creme de cassis new saddle leather vanilla spice box and cedar are reminiscent of a first-growth Bordeaux. As the wine sits in the glass more Shiraz characteristics (asphalt and blackberries) emerge. Sensationally concentrated and extremely full-bodied with monster extract yet not over-the-top it possesses beautifully integrated tannin as well as acidity. This profound Shiraz should age effortlessly for two decades. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2020. Importer: Dan Philips The Grateful Palate Oxnard CA; tel. (888) 472-5283
