Domaine A Cabernet Sauvignon 1999 - Magnum
The 1999 season certainly started with a bang. Budburst began in early September. Then came frost in late October in the lower levels of our cabernet sauvignon plot. 10 per cent of the plants sustained frost damage. The weather was then unexpectedly warm and dry until harvest time.
This vintage is a classic cabernet sauvignon with aromas of intense, ripe, leafy cassis and red berry fruits with hints of black pepper. Age has softened it only a little. Drink now or roll the dice for a few more years—perhaps three.
