After spending 21 months in barrel it was bottled unfiltered. A classic bouquet of ripe currants readily emerges from this dense ruby/purple-colored 1999. It possesses a supple texture sweet tannin plenty of ripeness beautiful purity and a layered personality. Forman told me his goal is "Ausone" but this effort has more in common with the Ausones of the late '90s produced under Alain Vauthier than any of the emaciated austere wines made by the previous administration. Forman's 1999 will drink well for two decades. Tel. (707) 963-0234; Fax (707) 963-5384

Dense and concentrated with compact earthy currant cedar pencil lead mushroom and a slight cheese rind edge all of which add up to complexity. Best from 2003 through 2012. 1500 cases made. –JL
