    April 10, 2021 - At 21 years of age this wine is showing no signs of decline yet I would rate it as fully mature. A quite lovely Napa Valley Cabernet. Medium to full body, perfectly balanced, delicate nose which opens up as the wine breaths, medium to long finish. Nice accompaniment to a Medium Rare Filet. Drink now or hold for another 3-5 years. Will benefit from a 60 Minute decant. Mind you, my bottle had perfect storage, take that into account if you still have some bottles.

    September 7, 2019 - Fun to try 20 year old cabs like this. '99 was a good vintage and have enjoyed many from that vintage. This held up well - nothing tired or awry though the fruit profile was weak. This had more of an earthy and smokey tone.

    May 13, 2015 - Cedar, red fruit, tobacco and spice. Well balanced, dries a little on the finish. Very nice grab for a Wednesday night at home after baseball...

    January 5, 2013 - Great find in a dark cellar in AA. Opens with musty cedar and tobacco aromas, some stale smoke, and dried herb notes as well. On the palate, the herbal notes blend well with the dried red fruits, and the minerality has replaced the tannin in the structure. The finish was light and fading, but that was the only drawback on an elegant wine. Excellent with prime rib and brussels sprouts.
