The micro-cuvee (about 200 cases) of 1999 Reserve Claret (two-thirds Merlot and one-third Cabernet Sauvignon) is awesome! This candidate for "wine of the vintage" spent 24 months in both old and new French oak. It boasts an opaque purple color in addition to a sumptuous sweet bouquet of espresso blackberries cassis maple syrup and vanilla. It is long layered multidimensional sweet and thick on the palate possessing an unctuosity and concentration that must be tasted to be believed. Nevertheless it is well-balanced and incredibly pure as well as long. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2020. Tel. (707) 963-4949; Fax (707) 963-6039

Rich complex and exotic with tempting spice and dark fruit aromas and layers of currant black cherry mocha sandalwood and cherry flavors that are sharply focused long and intense on the finish. Relies on Merlot (60 percent) for its grace and elegance with Cabernet (35 percent) giving it backbone. Also has 5 percent Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2009. 200 cases made. –JL
