1998 was the 2nd vintage produced of the RWT (standing for Red Winemaking Trial). It offers an evolved, earthy, tobacco and forest floor nose over notes of warm black berries and dried mint. Full bodied, there's a great combination of berry-laced and savory flavor in the mouth supported by firm fine-grained tannins and crisp acid, finishing long.
Rich, ripe and generous, a deep-pile carpet of blackberry, cherry, anise and white pepper flavors that linger on the polished finish. Appealing already.
Medium to full red-purple; the powerful, rich and complex bouquet offers ripe fruit and lots of oak. The deep, strongly structured palate has the abundant fruit the bouquet promised, but the overall impact of the oak and tannin extract needs time to settle down.
Bright medium ruby. Sexy, complex nose features dark berries, black cherry, roasted coffee, chicory and smoky, spicy oak. Lush and concentrated, with pliant but juicy flavors of cherry and berries; some tar and herbaceous notes emerged with extended aeration. Finishes long and bright, with firm, fine tannins and substantial oakiness.
