International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 102

Bright, full medium ruby. Subdued but highly complex nose melds black raspberry, blueberry, plum, licorice, mocha, leather and tar. Offers compelling sweetness and density, with sharply focused flavors of black fruits, minerals and roast coffee, but comes across as less expressive today than the merlot, and still tight on the back half. But a wine of outstanding breadth and persistence, deeper and sweeter than the 2000. Tannins are substantial but quite fine.

The 1999 Proprietary Red Wine (a 1,725-case blend of 69% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Merlot, 2% Petit Verdot, 1% Cabernet Franc, and 1% Merlot) is a successful offering. A dense purple color accompanies its sweet nose of creme de cassis intermixed with smoky, toasty oak, tar, and earth. While it leans toward a more austere, Bordeaux-like style, it possesses more glycerin, alcohol, and depth than most ripe Bordeaux. The finish exhibits chocolate and black currant flavors, plenty of sweetness, and austere tannin. Drink it over the next 14-15 years.

Ultraripe, pushing it to the max. Rich mocha-laced black cherry and blackberry fruit. Hints of milk chocolate, herb and currant. Finishes with smooth, plush tannins and excellent length and complexity. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc and Malbec. 1,750 cases made.

Deep dark red. Super smooth heritage. Like silk in the mouth. A medley of berries and cherries. Long finish. The wine softened tremendously in the last couple of years. Medium finish. At its height

Every time I taste this wine, it continues to impress me. Parker must have had the flu when he rated it. Aged for 18 months in new French oak, this wine is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (69%), Merlot (27%), Cabernet Franc (2%), Petit Verdot (1%), and Malbec (1%). Deep dark purple red colored wine with gushing aromas of smoke, dark chocolate, black olive, Oreos, berries and cream, game, sweet toasty oak, and cassis. Lots of sweet fruit with moderate (but barely noticeable at present) tannins and finely balanced acidity. The wine finishes very long with dark chocolate and cassis flavors before tailing off to reveal enjoyable toasty oak nuances. Simply gorgeous wine.
