Winemaker's Notes:

The 1999 Alden Cabernet Sauvignon is a delight as its bouquet expands immediately with a rich perfume. Red raspberry, currant and gardenia aromas are expansive as white pepper and cola flavors suggest the proper complement of oak aging.

Red cherry candy, a bit of strawberry and chocolate flavors expand on the palate while a slight impression of hickory and mint combine to create a lingering and delicious finish.
