The 1998 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa is an impressive effort. An opaque ruby/purple color is followed by a soft precocious evolved up-front style with gorgeous black fruits medium to full body soft tannin and good fatness allied to elegance and suppleness. While it does not possess much volume or density it is a delicious wine to drink over the next decade.

Slightly high-toned aromas of redcurrant cherry dark chocolate and mocha. Smooth and seamless but also vinous and juicy with a strong mineral character contributing to the impression of intensity. Not an especially fleshy wine but suave fresh and persistent. Tannins are firm but not at all dry. A strong performance for the vintage which comes as no surprise given the way Tony Soter succeeded with his own and his clients' cabernet-based wines in the difficult 1993 vintage. 90 points
