Kendall-Jackson Great Estates Napa Cabernet Sauvignon 1999
from Napa Valley, California
The dense 100% Cabernet Sauvignon is laden with blackberry and cassis for a rich mid-palate that is complimented by 22 months of French Oak. The Rutherford District is well represented in the finish showing flavors of Rutherford Dust and mint.
"There are 5,036 cases of the exceptional 1999 Great Estates Cabernet Sauvignon Napa. This opaque purple-colored Cabernet spent 23 months in primarily French oak, and had a whopping 47 days of skin contact. It is no shy wine at 14.5% alcohol, exhibiting aromas of vanilla, black currants, cedar, and loamy soil in addition to loads of concentrated fruit. This full-bodied and impeccably-balanced offering will be at its finest between 2006-2015."

I was recently fortunate enough to buy a half case of this vintage from an auction house and regret not buying their entire inventory. This wine drinks like a 40 dollar bottle even now, although I can imagine some of its current "bite" will disappear by 2005/6.
