Winemaker's Notes

The spring arrived later than usual and flowering occurred during cool weather, reducing crop production. Fortunately, we had planned on utilizing more of our own estate vineyard, which counteracted the lower yields. This new section of the vineyard is planted to a different rootstock than the first, adding more complexity to the final wine. The ideal growing season of ‘99 helped develop the fruit, resulting in more concentration and richer, rounder tannins.

This vintage is very characteristic of the Sullenger Vineyard. As with most of the wines from 1999, there is a focus on riper fruit flavors of plum and cherry. The vines from the new section of the vineyard add layers of blackberry, plum and cherry to further round out the wine, deepening its flavor and complexity. Notes of coffee and herb, coupled with sweet, toasty oak, add to the finish. There is considerable volume in this wine, but not necessarily more tannins.

The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
