Expert Reviews

93 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - July/August 1999

Deep red-ruby. Knockout, Bordeaux-like aromas of cherry syrup, plum, chocolate, mocha and brown spices, plus a faint vegetal complexity. Sweet, smooth and ripe, if not quite as dense as the extraordinary '91. Excellent acidity gives the flavors lovely clarity. Finishes firmly tannic and very long. Extremely suave wine.

Unbeatable from start to finish!!! This vintage has matured already, with a bold spicy start, fruity on the taste and a velvet like smooth finsh!! As good as the 1977 Stag's Leap and 1988 Mouton Rothschild!! It should get better as it ages too!!

About Napa Valley

Napa Valley is the most famous wine-growing area in the U.S. It begins at the base of Mount St. Helena in the north and tapers off some 30 miles to the south into the floodplain where the Napa River enters San Francisco Bay. From Mount St. Helena to the city of Napa, the valley is defined by two north-south ridgelines of the Coast Range Mountains.
