Dec. 04, 1999: FIFE Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 1998 (91 points, $28)

Ripe, supple and rich, with a lovely array of complex currant, black cherry, plum and spice. The long, intricate aftertaste has firm, polished tannins. A delicious wine at what these days is a comparatively good price for California Cabernet of this quali —James Laube
