Deep fresh ruby-red. Brooding aromas of currant syrup, licorice, naphtha and tobacco leaf. Fairly intense flavors similar to the aromas. Still quite youthfully tight, but offers solid concentration and very good length. Just a hint of greenness on the end; the firm tannins reach the teeth.

The 1999 Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley exhibits a deep, saturated ruby/purple color. The wine possesses aromas of sweet toasty oak, earth, spice box, cherries, and currants. It is a soft effort for this vintage. The wine has medium body, and good fruit and flavor. Drink it over the next 10-12 years.

Enjoyable and fruit forward. While it has softened it hasn't opened or gained in complexity. It is simple and drinkable and I wonder if it will ever really mature or improve with any more time in the bottle.

Had along side of the 2001 silver oak. This wine lost out, fruit had dissipated and it was slightly dull. Oak character still present but I thought it was past prime or slightly corked

Drinking very well; still had 30% fresh american oak flavor with the SO patten soft finish. Was working great with the filet. Still had legs for a few more years.
