Orlando Jacaranda Ridge Cabernet Sauvignon 1999

This wine will live for at least another 20 years, such is its richness and power.  It is almost more shiraz than cabernet in flavour profile.  In terms of aroma, there is chocolate, spices and licorice.  On the palate, there is some good length and very rich fruit.  This is undeniably a very good wine, but perhaps almost a meal in itself.  89 points (7.4/10)

Abv: 13.5%
Price: around $65
Would I buy it having tasted it?  It's a good wine, but it's probably a bit too rich for my taste in cabernet.
