This tiny 250-case lot from Pride Mountain Vineyards' winemaker Robert Foley exhibits exquisite concentration balance and harmony. This opaque purple-colored blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Merlot reveals aromas of licorice creme de cassis blackberries and iron. The wine is full-bodied rich and exceptionally well-balanced. This impressive offering can be drunk now and over the next 15 years.

Aromas of blackberry violet bitter chocolate and licorice along with pungent oak spice. Lush and silky for a '98 but with an impressively coiled spring of berry fruit thanks to lively acids. Classic mountain-style fruit bomb. Finishes very long with substantial but sweet tannins that reach the far corners of the palate.
