Concha Y Toro Cabernet Sauvignon 1999
Production Technique: Vines planted in 1979 are harvested by hand, and after fermentation, the wine is aged in French oak for 14 months (60% new, 40% used once). It is then bottle aged a further 12 months before release. Description: Color: Deep-ruby red. Bouquet: Ripe plums, cassis, chocolate and tobacco, accompanied with notes of vanilla. Taste: Elegant, full-bodied with mature tannins which make the wine complex and pleasant. Alcohol Content: 13.6% Total Acidity: 3.5 g/l The Puente Alto Vineyard in the Maipo Valley has the perfect combination of climate and soils for producing world-class wine: the climate is ideal and predictable, and the soil is poor and gravelly to reduce yields and increase concentration naturally. After fermentation, the wine is matured in the finest French oak barriques for 14 months, followed by another year in the bottle before release. Ripe fleshy fruit and berries lead off this highly aromatic wine. Later, the tobacco and chocolate come through and marry with the vanilla. Agreeable, mature tannins elegantly convey the best expression of the Puente Alto vines. The pleasant, long finish displays great harmony and balance.

RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
Deep Red. The nose was distinctly brettanomyces all but drowning the dark berry aroma. The nose did not develop at all over a 3 hour period. On the palate the wine was simple and exhibited little secondary character - perhaps at best some cedar. Tannins were dusty and generally what you expect of a wine of this age. This wine was a very big disapointment. (Served blind with 5 winemakers, all in agreement).

The beautiful 1999 Mouton Rothschild may be a modern day clone of their 1962 or 1985. Its saturated ruby/purple color is followed by sumptuous aromas of cedar wood, creme de cassis, wood smoke, coffee, and dried herbs. The wine is forward, lush, and full-bodied. It is already complex as well as succulent, fleshy, and long. Tannin in the finish suggests more nuances will emerge in 4-5 years. It is a complex, classic Mouton. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2030.
