The 1999 vintage was harvested a few days later than normal because of a cool summer. However, the conditions were ideal and the fruit maturity levels were textbook. The aroma and flavor the 1999 Cabernet Sauvignon are truly an extension of the vineyard and display the Estate-grown complexity our vineyard is known for. The finish is full, rich and rewarding. This wine will complement foods of robust style and will continue to develop with proper aging.
"Ripe, rich and polished, with a tasty array of complex currant, plum and wild berry flavors that are sharply focused, long and detailed on the finish. Tannins are sufficient for cellaring, yet neatly woven into the texture. A beautifully crafted Caberent."
