A dense, rich and distinctive wine, with baseline currant, earth, anise, herb and wild flower aromas. Sleek, complex and concentrated, you can chew on the rich layers of sweet ripe fruit, yet the tannins, even while firm, show signs of softness and elegance.
The opaque ruby/purple-colored 1999 Cabernet Sauvignon Old Reserve reveals leathery, animal-like notes intermingled with classic aromas of creme de cassis, smoke, and underbrush. Ripe, medium-bodied, and moderately tannic, it is more accessible than the 2000 Estate, but also more rustic as well as artisinal.
Full red-ruby. Sweet aromas of black raspberry, leather, cola and sassafras, with an herbaceous topnote. Dense and strong in extract, with the red fruit and earth flavors nicely framed by integrated acidity. This has excellent weight and a claret-like texture. Showed increasing sweetness and lushness with time in the open bottle. This reminded me of some Mount Eden cabernets from the old days. I'd give this at least six or eight years of additional bottle aging.
