Tenuta San Guido Bolgheri Sassicaia Cabernet Sauvignon Cabernet Franc 1999

$299

Very deep ruby to the rim. Musky aromas of dark plum, blackcurrant and tobacco leaf. Then juicy, intense and sharply delineated, with lovely lift to the flavors of dark berries, minerals and cedar. Wonderfully balanced wine: sound acids leave an impression of great clarity and cut and a fresh, lightweight mouth feel. Finishes with silky, suave, spreading tannins and a very intense, persistent saline/mineral element... Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Pencil lead, cooked fig, dark chocolate, vanilla; incredible balance between the juicy acidity and smooth yet grippy tannins. Perfect time to drink!

At peak, I would not wait any longer Lots of flavor, personality and complexity Long and aristocratic I must admit I wasn't too impressed with this bottle though

375ml - Drinking as you'd expect, ripe, extracted, there is a drying earthiness to the finish, but it looks so new world it's off putting, I don't think this region should be trying to emulate California.

A good amount of peppery spice tobacco a bit of a band aid quality with cedar dried tobacco and a good amount of dark currant, not a great vintage from bolgheri fermented in stainless Steel aged in French oak for up to 24 months. Quite smooth and drinkable with that nuance from the nose through the finish still quite fresh but tannins are quite smooth. Excellent
