International Wine Cellar(1998 Vintage) Bright ruby. Sexy aromas of black raspberry, violet, minerals, licorice, sappy spices and caraway seed. Less dense than '99 but supple, layered and vinous; intense dark berry flavors are complicated by oak spices and cocoa powder. Thoroughly enticing wine given the vintage tendency toward austerity.
