International Wine Cellars (IWC) Review

IWC 92-94
Saturated, bright ruby. Crystallized berries (cassis, boysenberry), minerals, violet, bitter chocolate and shoe polish on the explosive nose. Very dense and ripe but tightly wrapped; highly concentrated and quite powerful. Finishes with strong but refined tannins and a note of Cuban cigar tobacco.

Wine Advocate (WA) Review

WA 91
The 1999 Cabernet Sauvignon (a blend of 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Petit Verdot, and 3% Merlot; 1,400 cases) possesses an opaque purple color, loads of tannin, and a big, structured, beefy style with intense, concentrated, highly extracted black fruits intermixed with cedar, plum, coffee, and leather characteristics. Although not the most succulent Seavey Cabernet, and less successful than such vintages as 1997, 1995, and 1994, it is loaded, and the tannin is not excessive when compared to the fruit level.

Wine Spectactor (WS) Review

WS 93
Dark, rich and concentrated, with beautifully defined and ripe black cherry and blackberry fruit. Gains intensity and shows a firm wall of tannins on the finish, but they're ripe and plush, letting the fruit push forward. Needs cellaring.
