From prized vineyards in the Oakville, Rutherford and Mount Veeder appellations of the Napa Valley, this medium-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon is well integrated with succulent red and black fruit flavors, dash of white pepper, dried herbs, leather and smoky oak notes. The wine is balanced with supple tannins and dense flavors. Finishes smooth with lingering toast and cherry flavors.
"The 5,000-case cuvee of 1999 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa is an outstanding value. It is reminiscent of a Pauillac such as Grand-Puy-Lacoste because of its body and sweet cassis fruit. The wine is pure, ripe, dense, and full-bodied, with loads of cedar and spice box characteristics. This terrific Cabernet will be at its finest between 2004-2015."
