Stonestreet Christopher's Cabernet Sauvignon 1999
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Alexander Valley|
Wine EnthusiastJust what you would expect from a long, cool vintage and hillside vineyards - a tightly wrapped, dense wine that needs some time in the cellar to unfurl its flavors of chocolate, cassis and lead pencil. Has a richly textured mouthful and, despite some drying tannins, finishes with enough juicy fruit to more than compensate.
Wine AdvocateThe purple-colored 1999 Cabernet Sauvignon Christopher's Vineyard (1,000 cases of primarily Cabernet Sauvignon) exhibits tremendous density, muscle, and power along with sweet black currant fruit, smoke, licorice, and earthy characteristics as well as great fruit on the attack. This deep, powerful, long 1999 will be at its finest between 2006-2018.
