1999 Vine Cliff "Estate" Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #998160 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 1999 Cabernet Sauvignon's dense purple color is followed by scents of new oak, licorice, and cassis. It is medium to full-bodied, with an impressive attack as well as mid-palate, but a narrow, austere, tannic finish ... The tannin may prove problematic. (RP) Inner quote mark (8/2002)

Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Complex aromas of ripe plum, black cherry, mint, graphite and lead pencil turn dry, firm and tarry on the palate. Full-bodied and balanced, this is aging well, ending with dry, earthy, cedary tannins. — 1999 California Cabernet blind retrospective. (Web 2009) Inner quote mark

K&L Notes

Vine Cliff's Oakville Estate Vineyard consists of twelve unique blocks, nine of which are planted to Cabernet Sauvignon, one each to Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Each lot for this vintage was carefully hand sorted at the winery after being hand picked. The grapes were then de-stemmed without crushing, leaving as many whole berries as possible. After transferring the must it was chilled for 72 hours to enhance the extraction of color. The maceration varied by block from 20 to 30 days. The wine was then gravity fed to Chateau French oak barrels for a period of 20 months. The 1999 Vine Cliff Estate Cabernet Sauvignon has a deep dark garnet color. It has complex aromas with a rich ripe black cherry and blackberry fruit flavors. The finish is long and lingering.
