Brilliant, deep red/black color. This is a rich and concentrated wine brimming with the flavors of blackberry, currant, red plum, anise, and cedar. The wine displays a duality of power and elegance. The balance of intriguing fruits, spice, mocha oak and firm tannins makes this wine exceptional in its approachability and cellar worthiness.

Wine SpectatorSmooth, ripe and seductive, with wonderful purity of fruit centered around ripe plum, black cherry, blackberry and currant. Gains points for its supple texture, elegance and nuance, with a long, measured aftertaste that picks up anise and mineral flavors. Tannins are ripe and very well-integrated, with some heat on the finish. Best from 2004 through 2012. 841 cases made.

Wine AdvocateThe 1999 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Vineyard is profound and complex. It boasts cedar, black currant, and toast characteristics as well as great richness, full body, superb purity, layers of fruit, and high tannin. There are 312 cases of this superb 1999. However, patience will be required. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2016.
