1999 Cabernet Sauvignon

According to Robert Parker Jnr: “It has an impressively saturated black/purple color and a sweet nose of blueberry and cassis fruit intermixed with licorice and underbrush. The wine is dense, medium to full-bodied, and pure, with the fruit holding the upper hand. A bit more complexity and it too would have received an outstanding evaluation. Drink it over the next decade.”
