Merryvale Vineyards Profile Proprietary Red Wine Proprietary Blend 1999
Solid Blend

Excellent wine built up as a bordeaux style blend that delivers a big punch.  The fruit and tannins are well integrated together.  This should last 15+ years easily and will probably bring out more nuttiness along the way.

A California Red That Gets it Right!
Score: 95 points
Drink by: 3 to 7 years
At a recent visit to Merryvale Vineyards, I had the pleasure of tasting several of their top-shelf selections. The two most memorable were the 2000 Profile, followed by the 1999 Profile.

That is to say - I tasted the 2000 Profile first and was pleased with it`s acidity, but once I tried the 1999 Profile, I knew I would be going home with a bottle of the older vintage. This full-bodied Cab blend is highly flavorful and would pair nicely with a thick steak.

Wait a couple of years and this will be a true gem. It is extremely drinkable now. Expect to pay $65+ for a standard 750 ML bottle.
