Only 975 cases were ever made of Delectus’ 1999 Cabernet Sauvignon, and we’re thrilled a handful lasted into this millenium! Called “Sleek and racy” by Wine Spectator, that early freshness and edgy fruit is still alive in this sassy, sexy Cabernet Sauvignon after nearly twenty years of aging.
Beautifully aromatic, this Napa jewel is the rare release that takes cellaring out of the equation and is instead ready to love right now. Delectus has a gold star reputation for good reason--one sip and you’ll understand why!
PLEASE NOTE: All orders will begin shipping on June 20th, 2018
About the wine
Delectus is a standout in any vintage, but in the 97-point 1999 season, their Cabernet is a true showstopper. The year was cool and steady, without the early storms or heat waves that can easily doom a vintage, and picture-perfect grapes didn’t go to waste in the hands of 8th generation winemaker Gerard Reisacher.
Stored by the winery since the 1999 harvest, the quality on these bottles is unbeatable,, and ONLY Vivino guarantees perfect cellaring for aged wines. That’s how we know the signature burly tannins of this Napa Cab have softened into pure silk, and still elevate flavors of plum, and cassis mixed with cocoa, baking spice, and espresso accents.
With over 20 years in the Napa Valley, Delectus has become synonymous with greatness, and his army of fans--including Robert Parker--mean his limited wines never last. With a devotion to terroir and micro-release wines, their ‘99 Cab is truly handcrafted. Unlike larger labels, Delectus’ minute production means quality is paramount, and Reisacher’s experience is unmatched.
