The bouquet is deep, black fruity and quite complex in its blend of dark berries, cassis, lovely soil tones, hints of the chipotles to come, still a bit of residual bell pepper, gentle tariness and cedar. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bdoied, complex and shows off a good core, with a slightly tarry personality, melting tannins and a long, complex and low fat finish. Not a great vintage for this excellent bottling, but a very fine example of a 1998 north coast cabernet. As Philip Togni notes, “it lacks just a bit of the bass notes of a top vintage.” 2016-2040.

The 1998 Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits a dense ruby/purple color. Made from fruit that was harvested between October 30 and November 4 (50% of the crop was cut off to guarantee only ripe fruit) it reveals aromas of tapenade... The 1998 Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits a dense ruby/purple color. Made from fruit that was harvested between October 30 and November 4 (50% of the crop was cut off to guarantee only ripe fruit) it reveals aromas of tapenade licorice black currants smoked herbs and earth. The wine offers abundant black fruits outstanding richness and complexity. It can be drunk early but will easily age for 15 or more years.
