    Critical Acclaim:

    Full deep ruby-red. Briary black fruits, black plum, bitter chocolate and nutty, spicy oak on the nose. Lush entry, then stuffed with fruit in the middle, but with a firm core of acidity contributing backbone. Hints at an almost liqueur-like ripeness, but this classic mountain cabernet is very much in the sharply delineated, tightly wound style of the 1999 vintage. Has a primary, almost grapey quality as well as excellent persistence, suggesting that this wine will age slowly and well.

    I was never as enthusiastic about the 1999 vintage for Napa Cabernet as some of my colleagues, and the late-released 1999 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate displays the green, herbaceous element that was one of my disquieting observations about this vintage when it was first reviewed. Still very young, with a deeper color than the 2007 with just a touch of lightening at the edge, it reveals notes of forest floor, roasted herbs, black currants, and a hint of mint. Medium to full-bodied, pure, and extremely youthful, it has another 20 years ahead of it.

    wine with a potent personality. Dark and intense, with a massive core of tannins lining the racy, herbaceous bell pepper, currant, earth, mineral and tar flavors. Has a good dose of cedary oak. Finishes with firm tannins and the need to rest, chained in a dark, cool space for a few years.
