Wine Details

Wine Description

(1998 Vintage)

This Cabernet's complex ripe fruit aroma and taste remind us of raspberries and plums, but the grape clearly reigns. As usual, it has a little Cabernet Franc and a little Merlot in its inheritance; about 4% of each in this vintage. And, also as usual, it will get better and better with further aging. Prediction of the exact timing of full maturity is an art, not a science, but our crystal ball indicates another decade, at least. Cork out breathing for at least an hour or two before service is suggested for consumption in the interim.
