The 1999 vintage produced some awesome wines. It is one of the best years from the incredible decade of the 1990's. This wine is no exception. Deep, dark ruby red in color with beautiful aromas of concentrated black cherry and berry. It has hints of rose petal and sweet toasty french oak in the nose as well. In the mouth it is huge - tons of ripe lush fruit, great density and big mouthfeel. Tannins are restrained and elegant. Flavors are persistent lasting several minutes. This is a big balanced wine that will go well with a hearty meal.
Firm, rich and smooth, framed by silky ripe tannins. This plush, muscular wine offers mounds of black currant, blackberry, plum, chocolate, coffee, anise, spice and herb flavors. Long and sleek on the finish.
Impressive for its display of intensity, depth and balance. A marriage of spicy currant, toasty mocha-scented oak, red cherry, plum and anise. Turns smooth and polished with fine-grain tannins and excellent length. Best from 2004 through 2012. 510 cases made.
There are 500 cases of the 1999 Cabernet Sauvignon (100% Cabernet Sauvignon). Its saturated purple color is followed by gorgeous aromas of cassis, blueberries, spicy oak, licorice, and smoke. While it exhibits surprising opulence, fat, and richness, it is not quite as spectacular as I predicted from cask. Nevertheless, this high octane Cabernet Sauvignon should age nicely for 14-15 years.
