De Bortoli 1999 Melba Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon (Yarra Valley)

Though the wine contains fruit from the winery's oldest blocks, with only 1.5 tons harvested per acre, we didn't find it quite up to the quality of other De Bortoli wines. Nose shows hints of stewed fruit, molasses and a leafy quality. In the mouth, it tastes similarly past its prime—dusty, slightly baked-tasting fruit. A bit of a disappointment, considering the wine's reputation
