Revealing toasty American oak as well as chewy blackberry and licorice-infused fruit the 1998 Shiraz possesses multiple layers of concentration. This super-extracted rich low acid wine displays plenty of smoky oak pepper and spice but the fruit dominates ... in a big way. Drink it over the next 15-16 years.

Supple suave and concentrated spicy rich flavors of cassis licorice and bitter chocolate are given clarity by nicely integrated acids. A minty nuance adds complexity. Quite lush and pliant. Finishes long and generous with smooth ripe tannins. (The Grateful Palate Oxnard CA) 91 points
