The outstanding, 100% Cabernet Sauvignon 1999 Alan's Cabernet Sauvignon offers an opaque purple color, and a gorgeously sweet nose of black fruits, licorice, and vanillin. In the mouth, it displays a dry vintage port-like character. It is unctuous, thick, juicy, full-bodied, rich, monolithic, and destined to last for a decade or more. Production is 400 cases, and it was aged in French oak, of which 85% was new.
