VINOUS (STEPHEN TANZER)
Saturated red-ruby. Thoroughly ripe aromas of black raspberry, cassis, bitter chocolate, minerals, tar and sexy oak. Sweet, dense and concentrated, with a strong mineral underpinning and excellent grip. Finishes very long and ripe, with big, tongue-dusting tannins. A superb showing.

WINE SPECTATOR
A big, rich, intensely flavored wine with complex flavors and ripe tannins. The core of currant, kirsch, black cherry, coffee and anise is accented by beefy, leathery nuances and chewy tannins. Needs time. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.

ROBERT PARKER
There are 1,600 cases of the 1999 Jericho Canyon Vineyard Proprietary Red. It is a blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. This wine boasts both an impressive opaque purple color and bouquet of creme de cassis, roasted coffee, melted chocolate, toasty oak, licorice, and creosote. It is full-bodied, thick, and rich, with brooding but well-integrated tannin under all the flesh and density.
