Winemaker's Notes:

The 1999 vintage produced some awesome wines. It is one of the best years from the incredible decade of the 1990's. This wine is no exception. Deep, dark ruby red in color with beautiful aromas of concentrated black cherry and berry. It has hints of rose petal and sweet toasty french oak in the nose as well. In the mouth it is huge - tons of ripe lush fruit, great density and big mouthfeel. Tannins are restrained and elegant. Flavors are persistent lasting several minutes. This is a big balanced wine that will go well with a hearty meal.
