Can't begin to imagine what this tasted like 4 years ago as it seems like it is just starting to open up now. Inky black, tannins softening/dropping out. Probably would have done well with decanting. Moderate fruit, quiet nose, moderate length. Unfortunately, only one bottle...

This Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot blend offers a complex nose of red cherry, black currant, black licorice, coffee, leather, cedar, clove, and forest floor. A vibrant plum attack leads to a full mouth of blueberry, black currant, tobacco and black tea leaf. Broad shouldered tannins lead to a delicious chocolate covered strawberry finish.

From the winery: So pretty. So very, very pretty. This is the girl next door, with flowing blond air and soft pouty lips, who smells like flowers. She's the one that all the boys in town covet, and then cry over when she leaves for college. She's the girl that gets away - always. Except in this case she can't because she's a beautiful wine with soft, ripe, mouth filling spring citrus flowers, apricot, straw and honey. A kiss of oak sways her more toward French Burg than fat, buttery Cali Chard.

- Brick color with slow forming legs. It's balanced and has flavours of black currant, dusty and black pepper with a medium body. Round texture with a medium finish - Aging well. Black Fruit still exposed and settled.

Better tha than the Silver but also twice the price. Only two barrels made so price is high. Very smooth with dried cherry and some heat on the finish. I like this wine but QPR hurts rating. the Silver at half the price is much better value and nearly as good. Winery tasting is a lot of fun though this wine is not poured given the price.

So here we are several years past the last posted comment. The "Coda" if you will to Garden's "Coda" to my comments back 9 years ago in 2006. This wine is still very drinkable. Is it youthful and full of life? No. Does it have a tremendous tannin structure giving it a long time to live? No. But it is good and very drinkable. No color fade that you see in wines 10+ years of age. Not a tremendous amount of sediment build up. Just a nice, easy drinking California blend. Certainly if you have any left it is time to let go and pop the cork as the time is near the end. Tasted blind against 20+ other wines including a 97 Quilceda Creek, 2001 Ch. Rieussec, 2000 Leonetti Merlot, 2002 Cristal, 2005 Williams Selyem Zinfandel, 2012 Jayson Cabernet Sauvignon, 2012 Buccella Merlot and many more and everyone in the room was shocked to see the vintage be from 99. The color and taste certainly didn't indicate so.

Nice cab, still a little tight but with patience comes reward.

Really dry but nice mouth feel. Lots of fruit at the open given ay to some wood and an earthy finish.

A nose of some dark fruit and spice, dark garnet in color. A medium to full bodies red, with blackberry, black cherry, milk chocolate and some spice on finish. I am a big fan of John Caldwell’s wines but this was a disappointment, lacked backbone, not a good value. www.winelx.com
