    March 22, 2018 - Still lots of power. Needs an hour or 2 to open up. Very nice. I love 1999's from california.

    March 3, 2018 - Tasted along with a 1997 Firestone Reserve Cab. Decanted for 15minutes. Color was vibrant with just a hint of bricking on the edge. Nose was fresh, plum, strawberry and herbs. Opened up in the glass, tannins fully integrated. Very nice Cabernet, flavors of blueberry, dark cherry, lead pencil and a light note of wood. Well made, drink over the next couple of years.

    November 18, 2016 - This puppy has seen better days. Very brick in color. Muted, somewhat dusty on the palate. I just don't think it has any stuffing any more.
