Are there any negative consequences to pressing before your hydrometer registers 0.99? I imagine that the grapes will finish there as fermentation continues in demijohns & carboys.

You'll be fine. We only leave on the skins, after crush, for a week. The SG when we press is normally around 1.030 and never had issues with body or taste.
