About the Wine – 1999 Vintage
From youthful vines planted in the Cornerstone Vineyard, the 1999 Shiraz Apricot Block (ancient in both new and old American oak) tips the scales at 14.8% liquor. Its hazy purple shading is joined by fragrant firecrackers (white blooms, pepper, sweet blackberry alcohol, and cassis). This perfectly clean, full-bodied, multidimensional, layered Shiraz shows low acridity and ready tannin. Appreciate this spectacular, ostentatious effort throughout the following 12-14 years.
