Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar Review of 1999 Cabernet Sauvignon, Paradise Hills Vineyard

Review by Stephen Tanzer

Rating: (91)

(like the 2000, this includes a bit of cabernet franc) Medium ruby-red. Exotic red and black fruits, minerals, game, wild herbs and dried flowers on the nose, all lifted by sexy sandalwood and cardamom oak tones; I get almost a suggestion of Provencal garrigue Sweet but firm and penetrating; with less stuffing than the 2000, this conveys an impression of higher acidity. Finishes bright and long.
