Winemaker Notes

After ten years this one continues to fill the glass with aromatic brightness and in the mouth offering raspberry, blackberry, cola and a richness of fruit; its liveliness is just beginning to show a more mature balance of tobacco, herbs and minerals and a core of sweetness. This generously proportioned wine offers a long, lingering. Its masculine tannins are similar to the 1992 vintage of Hillside Select and continue to offer excellent aging potential.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
RP 97
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 1999 Cabernet Sauvignon Hillside Select is one of the finest wines of the vintage. The 14.9% alcohol is barely noticeable given the amazing concentration and intensity. A saturated opaque purple color is followed by scents of vanilla, blackberry liqueur, crushed minerals, and a hint of white flowers. There is stunning intensity, tremendous purity, full body, and a remarkable, seamless finish (amazing given the elevated, austere tannin).
WS 94
Wine Spectator
Combines the richness and power of youth with the subtleties of age. Big, ripe and expressive, with tiers of ripe currant, black cherry, plum and mocha, showing a touch of cedary oak and finishing with a long, pure, focused finish.

One of the most prestigious wines of the world capable of great power and grace, Napa Valley Cabernet is a leading force in the world of fine, famous, collectible red wines. Today the Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without the other. But it wasn’t until the 1970s that this marriage came to light; sudden international recognition rained upon Napa with the victory of the Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars 1973 Cabernet Sauvignon in the 1976 Judgement of Paris.

Cabernet Sauvignon undoubtedly dominates Napa Valley today, covering half of the land under vine, commanding the highest prices per ton and earning the most critical acclaim. Cabernet Sauvignon’s structure, acidity, capacity to thrive in multiple environs and ability to express nuances of vintage make it perfect for Napa Valley where incredible soil and geographical diversity are found and the climate is perfect for grape growing. Within the Napa Valley lie many smaller sub-AVAs that express specific characteristics based on situation, slope and soil—as a perfect example, Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
