Full malo, all French oak but subdued. Soft, ripe. Pears and banana, good minerals. Spicy, hot finish. $13

Smooth, oaky, smoky. Tannic finish. Big fruitiness. Merloty in good way. Acidic, not sour. $16

Dunkles Purpurrot. Aromen von schwarzen und roten Johannisbeeren bestechen mit diskreten Noten von Tabak und Kräutern der Provence. Sehr gute Balance zwischen Eichenholz und Frucht. Der Gaumen wird von intensiven, aber weichen Tanninen geradezu attackiert. Dazu eine feine Säure, die zu einer harmonischen Struktur sowie zu einem besonders langem Abgang verhilft.

The medium to dark ruby-colored 1999 Cabernet Sauvignon has intense blackberry and cassis liqueur-like aromas. Medium to full-bodied and mouth-staining, this satin-textured wine is crammed with copious quantities of dark fruits. Seamless, with no hard edges, this excellent value is a well-structured, powerfully flavored wine for drinking over the next 6ndash;7 years.

Lively and fresh, with crushed raspberry and blueberry flavors, and a muscular, smoky finish.
