94 Points

Saturday, April 13, 2013 - Fine deep ruby color. Simply gorgeous nose of dark cherries and wild forest with notes of char and spice. The nose is a bit out ahead of this beautiful wine which while delicious now, clearly needs a number of years to fill out its britches. After being open for an hour, the spritzy acidity calmed down some and fabulous medicinal cherry fruit began to show itself. The finish is already classic with intense spicy complexity but having tasted the '95 version of this wine just a few days ago which is near peak, I've got to be patient with the '99 and wait for the glories to come as this moves closer to maturity. 94++
