Moreover, they remain realistically priced. This is a Medoc 1998 that is revealing more mid-palate, flesh, concentration, and sweeter tannin than it did during its previous year and a half in barrel. A blend of 42% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Cabernet Franc, and 38% Merlot, this black/purple-colored claret exhibits sweet aromas of licorice, incense, Asian spices, cedar, plums, and black currants. Full-bodied and sweet on the entry, with good acidity, definition, and ripe tannin, it will be drinkable young, yet last for 12-15 years.
