95 points "A compelling offering, the 1999 Shiraz/Cabernet The Signature (56% Cabernet Sauvignon and 44% Shiraz) possesses a dense purple color along with a sweet, multilayered personality revealing aromas and flavors of earth, blackberries, cassis, and vanilla. This offering spent 22 months in a combination of both new and used French and American oak. With considerable authority and power, it requires 2-3 more years of bottle age, and should last for 12-15 years." Best 2005-2018
