RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The opaque purple-colored 1999 (a blend of 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot, and 22% Syrah) is a surprisingly large-scaled offering, yet possesses plenty of nuances as well as elegance. It offers notes of cassis, blackberries, and licorice, a terrific texture, and copious quantities of sweet tannin. This dense, opulent, provocative 1999 will have a huge following given its sweet fruit, complex aromatics and flavors, and seamless finish. It is a brilliant achievement for the vintage. It will drink well for 10-12 years. This is a very impressive offering. There are approximately 800 cases of this proprietary blend from a 20-30-year old southern Napa vineyard planted near Coombsville. Made by winemaking consultant Philippe Melka, it is an impressive efforts that see 50-75% new French oak, and is bottled with minimal clarification. The packaging (a fascinating, heavy, designer bottle) may be inspiring, but the real excitement is in the bottle.

Undoubtedly proving its merit over and over, Napa Valley is a now a leading force in the world of prestigious red wine regions. Though Cabernet Sauvignon dominates Napa Valley, other red varieties certainly thrive here. Important but often overlooked include Merlot and other Bordeaux varieties well-regarded on their own as well as for their blending capacities. Very old vine Zinfandel represents an important historical stronghold for the region and Pinot noir is produced in the cooler southern parts, close to the San Pablo Bay.

Perfectly situated running north to south, the valley acts as a corridor, pulling cool, moist air up from the San Pablo Bay in the evenings during the hot days of the growing season, which leads to even and slow grape ripening. Furthermore the valley claims over 100 soil variations including layers of volcanic, gravel, sand and silt—a combination excellent for world-class red wine production.
