1999 Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

(not eligible for discounts)

The North Bay Bohemian, March 20, 2003
"Best Cabernet in Sonoma County"

91 points The Wine News  June/July 2003
"Dense and chewy…an exotic, sexy wine…could easily demand more princely sums"

91 points Wine Enthusiast November, 2002
Bill Arbios "started Arbios Cellars in 1993, and since then has been producing high quality, reasonably priced Cabernet.  His 99 Cab starts with aromas of black cherries and green olives.  The nice fruit-earth balance is enjoyable through the lingering rich finish.  Editor’s Choice."
