Tasting Notes:
rated: September 1, 2001 , Wine Spectator
"Thick, ripe Cab, with chunky blackberry, smoke and chocolate flavors that need time to flesh out as the finish is dominated by firm, heavily smoky, oaky flavors...will have its fans. Best from 2002 through 2004." Best 2002-2004
rated: April 1, 2002 , The Wine Advocate
89 points "Pierre Rovani writing for the Wine Advocate: The dark ruby-colored, tight, and backward 1999 Cabernet Sauvignon Cuvee Alexandre has cassis liqueur and kirsch-like aromas. This is a muscular wine with loads of concentration and extraction. It is, at present, firm and tannic, yet should blossom into a glorious, fruit-dominated wine with 3-4 years of cellaring. Projected maturity: 2005-2011." Best 2005-2011
