Wine SpectatorA dazzling wine, sleek and sophisticated, with beautiful ripe fruit purity. It has rich currant, creme de cassis, light mocha and herb shadings and a silky-smooth texture that firms on the finish as the tannins make their presence more evident. Drink now through 2014. 4,321 cases made.

Wine AdvocateThe 1999 Cabernet Sauvignon (95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc) possesses a deep purple color in addition to a restrained but intense nose of black currants intermixed with lead pencil shavings, subtle toast, and a hint of acacia flowers. This textured, elegant, medium-bodied Cabernet is Chateau Margaux-like in its elegance, gracefulness, and balanced restraint. It displays surprisingly sweet tannin for a 1999 as well as outstanding purity. Anticipated maturity: now-2016.

Wine EnthusiastOpening aromas range from well-ripened blackberry fruit to leaner, herbal notes of peat, green olive and dried leaves. Vanilla, caramel and smoke are contributed by oak. Feels creamy and dense in the mouth, with solid tannins, and finishes long, with a trace of bitterness.
