PARKER REVIEW
June 2001, Issue 135

BERRYS BRIDGE 1999 Cabernet Sauvignon 89
BERRYS BRIDGE 1999 Shiraz 93

"These are obviously top-notch wines made from ripe fruit and what would appear to be extremely low yields. The blockbuster 1999 Shiraz (14.7% alcohol) has an opaque blue/purple color and an extraordinary nose of blackberries, blueberries, and toast. Full-bodied, ripe, and multi-layered with exhilarating levels of glycerin, concentration, and depth, this is a pure, full-bodied, surprisingly supple wine to drink over the next 10-12 years.

Slightly more structured but not as complex nor as concentrated is the 1999 Cabernet Sauvignon. It has an impressively saturated black/purple color and a sweet nose of blueberry and cassis fruit intermixed with licorice and underbrush. The wine is dense, medium to full-bodied, and pure, with the fruit holding the upper hand. A bit more complexity and it too would have received an outstanding evaluation. Drink it over the next decade."
