Description:

*Blankiet Cabernet 1999 (1 bt) 2000 (1 bt)
Napa
"The 1999 Proprietary Red, made from Cabernet Sauvignon with only a dollop of Cabernet Franc blended in, boasts a saturated purple color along with complex, smoky aromatics consisting of espresso, licorice, blackberry, cassis, and mineral scents. It is full-bodied, with noticeable structure, and a pure finish. The vintage's cool climate tannins are obvious in this dramatic, beautifully made debut offering. It should be at its best between 2006-2016." R. Parker, 95 pts. 08/02 2 bottles
Estimate $250-350
