The opaque purple-colored 1998 Reserve Claret (a blend of 60% Merlot 35% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot) reveals red and black fruit scents intermixed with vanilla underbrush and mocha/coffee. It is long and opulently-textured with low acidity fabulous fruit a succulent expansive mid-palate and a blockbuster long finish. This is compelling stuff! Drink it over the next 12-15 years. The limited production Reserve cuvee (280 cases) is an expression of California winemaking at its most compelling.Tel. (707) 963-4949; Fax (707) 963-6039

Huge thick and mouthfilling with compelling sweetness and spicy character. Boasts great depth of flavor and ripe acids for the vintage. But chewy ripe tannins hit the palate very late.
