The 1999 Cabernet Sauvignon Hillside Select is one of the finest wines of the vintage. The 14.9% alcohol is barely noticeable given the amazing concentration and intensity. A saturated opaque purple color is followed by scents of vanilla, blackberry liqueur, crushed minerals, and a hint of white flowers. There is stunning intensity, tremendous purity, full body, and a remarkable, seamless finish (amazing given the elevated, austere tannin). Give the 1999 another 2-3 years of cellaring, and enjoy it over the following two decades or longer. A brilliant effort!

Good saturated ruby-red. Superripe aromas of currant tobacco coffee chocolate and maple syrup. Sweet lush and suave with a floral aspect; showing the vibrant juicy quality of the vintage s better examples. Really spreads out to coat the palate. Finishes with big sweet broad tannins and a mineral note. 94 points Stephen Tanzers IWC.
