Bright dark ruby, the deepest of these '99s. Very complex nose combines currant, rose petal, citrus blossom, meat, leather and underbrush. Big and brooding, with strong acidity and slightly aggressive tannins keeping the flavors under wraps. Finishes uncompromisingly dry, but this powerful wine also has superb richness. (ST)
Discipline will be demanded before all the attributes of the 1999 Pinot Noir Coastlands Vineyard (600 cases) can be enjoyed. This concentrated, dark ruby-colored effort possesses copious quantities of black fruits, a muscular, meaty mid-palate, high acidity, moderate but noticeable tannin, and a long, concentrated finish. It is still primal and youthful. Give it 2-3 years of cellaring, and enjoy it over the following decade. (RP)
Intense, with firm acidity propping up the citrusy wild berry and black cherry flavors. Softens a bit on the finish, but given its vibrancy, it's best to cellar short-term.
