    The 1997 Cabernet Sauvignon does possess high alcohol (14.6%), is made from moderately young vines (11 years), and from reasonable yields (2 tons per acre), but that hardly tells the story. This low acid, formidably endowed blockbuster must be the most concentrated Cabernet Sauvignon-based wine I have tasted in many a year. An opaque black/purple color is followed by a fabulous nose of black fruits, cedar, Asian spices, licorice, and truffle. The wine hits the palate with layer upon layer of highly-extracted, super-jammy, ripe fruit. Low acidity gives the wine an accessibility and sumptuousness that redefine the word "hedonism." The finish lasts for more than a minute. This is an exhilarating, teeth-staining Cabernet Sauvignon that, remarkably, can be drunk now or cellared for 20-30+ years. An astonishing wine!

    One of my weekly Cabernet Sauvignons for a number of years was Greenock Creek’s 1997. It was released at a very reasonable price, and, again, I did not know what to expect as this estate is not associated with Cabernet Sauvignon as much as Grenache and Shiraz. This 1997 is still a killer wine. Its dark plum/purple color is accompanied by aromas of spice box, cedarwood, sweet licorice, and black currants. Full-bodied, velvety-textured, and gorgeously proportioned, it is a sexy Cabernet Sauvignon that should continue to evolve for 5-10 years.
