87-89 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 1999

Bright ruby-red. Subdued, fruit-driven aromas of cassis, violet and shoe polish; distinctly cooler and more classic than the '96. Soft and juicy, with ripe acids and tannins. A bit closed in the middle at this early stage of its development. Still, I don't yet find quite the flavor development of the '96 Napa bottling.

Full bodied, plum flavors, with rich berry fruit. Yet very accessable to drink right now. Perfect with a standing rib roast.
Typical Calif. Cab.

Very easy to drink. Medium bodied with rich berry and cellar in flavors. The tannins is mild and detailed after taste. Good value!

Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet Sauvignon built its reputation on Bordeaux's Left Bank. Here, in the district of Medoc, the varietal is the key component of blended wines that also may include some Merlot and Cabernet Franc, and even Malbec and Petit Verdot. Moving slightly south, Cabernet Sauvignon meets Merlot in roughly equal proportions in the red wines of Graves. In both of these Bordeaux regions, the top bottles...
