Winemaker's Notes

Inky-black center with a brick-red rim. Slow-opening aromas of menthol, oak and blackberry. Intense flavors of black cherry and tea. Powerful tannins in the long, youthful finish.

Critical Acclaim

"The 1999 Cabernet Sauvignon Stags Leap exhibits a deep ruby color along with a sweet nose of plums, cassis, cherries, subtle new oak, medium body, and a restrained style. Drink this pure, round, seductive Cabernet over the next 10-12 years. This stylish, sophisticated effort might be compared to a graceful, feminine-styled Bordeaux, such as a cru classe from Margaux. I admire it for its subtlety. Additionally, it possesses beautiful fruit, outstanding purity, and a graceful personality. "
