"The 1999 Le Grand Vin Proprietary Red is a blend of two-thirds Cabernet Sauvignon and the balance mostly Merlot with a dollop of Petit Verdot. Its lofty 14.3% alcohol is well-hidden beneath a full-bodied, intense style. The wine is still an infant in terms of development. It is admirably concentrated, with sweet tannin, new oak, and a long, layered, pure finish. This serious effort is for those with patience. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2025."
