1999 Reserve Claret

From the beginning, the 1999 harvest has proved to be one of our most successful. As ripening progressed, our top vineyards started showing tremendous potential. The consistent ripening period gave great depth and color to the finished wine with an amazing amount of complexity. Even before this wine was allowed to spend time in the new French oak barrels, it showed good balance and richness.
