Feminine. Delicate, lilac, black cherry, cedar. Korintje cinnamon, leather. Fine-grain tannins, not quite silky. Wonderful acidity and length. Would drink now

What can I say? Even for a relatively off year, this is fabulous. Ample blackberry and earth, smooth integrated tannins, perhaps a little lacking in the mid-palate, but wonderful fragrance and finish.

Silky smooth and delicious. It is hard to be specific about the qualities of this wine as everything fits together so seamlessly. From magnum.

Another great bottle that has lots of life left. One of the best of the night the 99 surprised me, far out performing its ratings. Deep color, great mouth feel, love the Cabernet strength you seldom get from CB. Very enjoyable.

Le aspettative creano sempre delusioni. Un ottimo vino, l'emozione resta sulla carta dei vini.

decanted 2 hours. cassis, cherry, but also a fragrant floral nose and earthiness more similar to a burgundy/pinot. very elegant wine, almost feminine and an intoxicating nose. well-balanced and it was delicious over dinner. the last few sips we noticed slight fading. A splendid wine for a birthday celebration.
