"There are 500 cases of the 1999 Cabernet Sauvignon (100% Cabernet Sauvignon). Its saturated purple color is followed by gorgeous aromas of cassis, blueberries, spicy oak, licorice, and smoke. While it exhibits surprising opulence, fat, and richness, it is not quite as spectacular as I predicted from cask. Nevertheless, this high octane Cabernet Sauvignon should age nicely for 14-15 years. With superstar vineyard manager David Abreu, and highly respected wine consultant Heidi Barrett making the wines, Jones Family Vineyard has already achieved a large following. Robert Parker" 91 pts.
Impressive for its display of intensity, depth and balance. A marriage of spicy currant, toasty mocha-scented oak, red cherry, plum and anise. Turns smooth and polished with fine-grain tannins and excellent length. Best from 2004 through 2012. 510 cases made. (JL) WS 93
