From a legendary winemaker, a wine designed for the cellar. Dick Arrowood shunned the easy approach, instead crafting a fairly tannic wine with a solid core of blackberry, cherry and herb flavors. Although the tannins are soft in the modern way, it’s best after 2005.
Beautifully crafted, smooth, rich and polished, with a fine core of spicy, cedary, mocha-scented oak marrying nicely with ripe currant, anise, black cherry and finishing with fine-grained tannins. (JL)
Take the regular cuvee, put it on steroids, and add more new oak and you have the full-bodied, powerful, concentrated 1999 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve Speciale. Abundant leather, tobacco-tinged, cassis flavors combine with hints of dried herbs and soil in this dense, tannic effort. This 1,100-case cuvee will require patience. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2022.

Good red-ruby. Musky, rather backward nose hints at black fruits and tar. Dense, fat and sweet, with raspberry and currant fruit notes complicated by tobacco and graphite. Sweet finish features fine, ripe tannins and tarry oak. This is solidly structured for aging, but there's also plenty of forward fruit. (ST)
