1999 STANLEY'S SELECTION
Cabernet Sauvignon

Tasting Notes
The 1999 Stanley’s Selection is spicy, fruity aromatics lead to a rich and supple wine with pretty currant, anise, cherry and blackberry flavors. The finish is long and has a touch of chocolate.

Vineyard Source
The Following breakdown of the four vineyards contributing the Stanley’s fruit:

1. Price Vineyard: 1+ acre planting, contiguous to Spottswoode – early ripening. Low yield production with excellent sugar/acid ratio.
2. Walther Vineyard: 2+ acres planting near Caymus Vineyards– alluvial canyon soil. Grace Family clone – close planting for added stress.
3. Corbett Vineyard: 1+ acre also adjacent to the Moffett Vineyard. We planted this vineyard ourselves in 1987.
4. Gemstone Vineyard: Yountville AVA-An amazing vineyard which has 5 clones of Cabernet along with Cabernet Franc, Merlot, and Petite Verdot. Most of this wine is designated for our ultra premium Red Table Wine.
