club Thursday had to open a 1999 yesterday for lunch. Breeding shows! Powerful juice that has everything cabernet should have in spades. Biggest difference between the 2 vintages is the 99 has a passel of tannins that'll carry this sucker at least another 5-7 to peak. Lip-smacking fruit and a 4+ lapper finish. 91/93. 35 on futures 14.2% alc. WW

Had anudder fer lunch today and this heathen 'haint civilized yet....but, it at least is zipping up its' fly in public. Nose is beginning to give some good stuff. The palate still takes an hour to begin to open up. Great juice in the making...IF only I can show the patience. WW
