Pine Ridge Chenin Blanc-Viognier California 1999

Winemaker's Notes:

ORIGIN: Supple tannins and black cherry fruit flavors are immediately noticeable from this world-famous Stags Leap District appellation. The estate-bottled 1999 Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley - Stags Leap District is produced in the Bordeaux style by carefully blending 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Petit Verdot, 8% Merlot, 3% Malbec, and 3% Cabernet Franc. WINEMAKING: The grapes were harvested in late September and the first week of October, pumped over traditionally and macerated on the skins for 20-27 days. The wine was pressed to barrel for malolactic fermentation, and aged in 85% new, and 15% one-year-old heavily-toasted French oak barrels for 16 months. The wine was bottled in April 2001 without fining or filtration. ORIGINAL TASTING NOTES: Black cherry, cassis, blackberry flavors dominate this full-bodied Cabernet. A broad, sweet and silky entry precedes a toasty, vanilla-mocha, chocolate and cherry finish. With its firm, well-structured tannins it may be consumed now or cellar aged for future enjoyment. FOOD PAIRING: Wine-Braised Lamb Shank with Fingerling Potatoes CHEESE PAIRING: Aged Red Cow Parmesan The vintage produced 5,067 cases including 1.5L, 3.0L, and 6.0L formats

A tour de force. Deliciously rich and complex with layers of juicy plum black cherry currant and wild berry shaded by anise cedar earth and mineral flavors it fairly gushes with fruit on the finish yet should age gracefully for another decade maybe more. Best from 2004 through 2015... Wine Spectator.

Smooth-textured with well-focused currant toasty oak black cherry and plum notes. Excellent structure depth and concentration. Finishes with a long complex even subtle aftertaste. Best from 2003 through 2012. 13 000 cases made. JL Wine Spectator.
