1999 Alain Thienot Cuvée Alain Thiénot
1999 Beringer Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve
Both wines are drinking extremely well: The Thienot has a wonderful balance of mature notes and youthful vibrancy; the Beringer was decanted for sediment, and consumed over two hours. It appeared rather young, and is an elegant and interesting wine, not unlike many other Beringer PR Cabs from the 80s and 90s.
Each of these wines should provide several more years of drinking enjoyment.
