Cullen Diana Cabernet Merlot 1999

87 points

Margaret River, Western Australia. 14%. cork

From a fine vintage in WA I hoped for better.

Muted nose, slightly muddy minerally old-fashioned Bordeaux.

Nice palate weight but a greeness to the tannins on the finish. OK but far from delicious. Would not stand well in the company of current vintage WA cabernets.
