A mouthful of wine that packs in lots of rich deep plush and concentrated flavors with tiers of currant blackberry raspberry and wild berry fruit. Well-integrated tannins smooth out the finish.

Well-integrated tannins smooth out the finish. Drink now through 2010. Tasted twice with consistent notes. 1475 cases made. (JL)

Superripe aromas of black fruits maple syrup mocha and graphite; at once roasted and vibrant. Supersweet in the mouth with sappy black fruit and mineral flavors over a firm backbone. Shapelier and a bit less roasted than the 2000 with firm supporting backbone. This is very impressively concentrated California merlot; the fruit spreads out and builds on the very long firmly tannic back end. I underrated this wine from barrel a year ago.

The 1999 Merlot (100% Merlot 1650 cases) is rich and ripe but it is doubtful that it will achieve mind-boggling proportions. The dense ruby/purple-colored 1999 offers smoky licorice cherry and chocolatey aromas medium to full body good acidity and a thick full-bodied finish. Anticipated maturity: 2002-2012.
