Livingston Moffett Gemstone Cabernet Sauvignon 1999

SKU 806


The complexities inherent in a great site and in multiple low-yielding clones of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petite make this wine reminiscent of a First Growth Medoc. Its creamy palate, honied and floral aromatics and salty minerality all take it far beyond the usual parameters of Napa Cabernet.

Wine SpectatorDusty-scented, cedary oak leads to a sleek, restrained core of currant, anise and cherry-laced fruit that's austere and in need of cellaring. One hopes that with time it will offer more depth and complexity, especially at this price. Best from 2003 through 2009. 425 cases made.
