The 1999 Venge Family Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, from a tannic, cooler climate vintage, requires 5-6 years of cellaring. It spent 30 months in new French oak, resulting in tremendous structure and depth, but it was closed when I tasted it. There is an opaque purple color, layers of concentration, and a sweet nose of toast, blackberries, and black currants mixed with licorice and a pleasant odor of compost. The wine is powerful as well as tannic. Only those with patience and a cold cellar should purchase this beast. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2022.
