Displaying a dense purple color as well as low acidity, this blackberry and cassis-flavored 1999 possesses a fat, juicy mid-section, and outstanding purity, ripeness, and glycerin in the long finish, which oozes over the palate with no bumps. The tannin is well-concealed by the wealth of chewy fruit.

Wine AdvocateThis dense ruby/purple-colored 1999 is a modern day clone of this estate's wonderful 1962. The 1999 reveals forward, open-knit notes of creme de cassis and earth. It is fleshy, medium to full-bodied, and succulent, with supple tannin, excellent balance, as well as a long, pure, ripe finish. This seductive effort will drink well for 12-15 years, possibly longer.

Wine SpectatorBerry and tobacco aromas, with hints of spice. Medium-bodied, with fine tannins and a fruity finish. Slightly one-dimensional, but a good wine. Not a great Lynch, but very good. Best after 2004. 35,000 cases made.
