Winemaker's Notes

The 1999 growing season in the high altitude wine country of Mendoza offered ideal conditions for the cultivation of truly exceptional Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec fruit. A dry, temperate Spring resulted in an excellent initiation of the vegetative cycle and an even, balanced fruit set. The warm, sunny days and cool mountain nights throughout the summer months allowed the grapes to experience a slow, gradual maturation process, helping to ensure a more complete ripeness.
