The 1999 Cabernet Sauvignon…possesses an opaque purple color, loads of tannin, and a big, structured, beefy style with intense, concentrated, highly extracted black fruits intermixed with cedar, plum, coffee, and leather characteristics…[It] is loaded, and the tannin is not excessive when compared to the fruit level.

Wine SpectatorDark, rich and concentrated, with beautifully defined and ripe black cherry and blackberry fruit. Gains intensity and shows a firm wall of tannins on the finish, but they're ripe and plush, letting the fruit push forward. Needs cellaring. Best from 2005 through 2014. 1,400 cases made.

Wine AdvocateThe 1999 Cabernet Sauvignon (a blend of 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Petit Verdot, and 3% Merlot; 1,400 cases) possesses an opaque purple color, loads of tannin, and a big, structured, beefy style with intense, concentrated, highly extracted black fruits intermixed with cedar, plum, coffee, and leather characteristics. Although not the most succulent Seavey Cabernet, and less successful than such vintages as 1997, 1995, and 1994, it is loaded, and the tannin is not excessive when compared to the fruit level. However, patience will be required. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2020.
