The opaque purple-colored 1999 Cabernet Sauvignon boasts exceptionally sweet fruit as well as a tell-tale perfume of melted licorice black currant liqueur and hints of blueberries and flowers. This wine is long ripe and full-bodied with the vintage's more noticeable astringent tannin. It will be at its apogee between 2006-2021. (Release date 10/02)Tel. (707) 944-2676; Fax (707) 944-8411

Superripe and impressively deep; conveys a rather austere impression of thick grape skins. Black fruit and shoe polish flavors sweetened by exotic spice notes of mace and nutmeg. Really builds on the very long finish which features big tongue-dusting tannins. An outstanding vintage for this bottling.
