December 201396+ Power and structure are the hallmarks of the 1999 Solaia, a wine that will drink well for another 15-20 years, if not longer. The firm, structured style will thrill classicists. In a flight of standout vintages, the 1999 truly excels. For years, the 1999 was very tight. It finally seems to be blossoming.
December 200294 The first two bottles I tasted of the 1999 Solaia were corked, but the third was brilliant. Its black/purple color is followed by a sumptuous bouquet of licorice, blackberries, mint, and cassis, all presented in a concentrated, medium to full-bodied, dense yet elegant style. Although still young, it is undoubtedly the qualitative equivalent of a Bordeaux first or second growth. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2016.
October 31, 200294 Dark in color, with intense aromas of blackberries and fresh herbs, such as basil, with a hint of eucalyptus. Full-bodied, with extremely well-polished tannins and a long, long finish. A tight and racy young wine that needs time to come into its own. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Sangiovese. Best after 2005. 7,000 cases made.
