Here again the 1998 vintage shows its forward, fat, fruity, lip-smackingly luscious qualities right out in front. This is a meaty, oaky Cab, with firm, tongue-lashing tannins, plenty of red berry/cassis fruit and a power-packed profile from top to bottom. It’s delicious and strong, with coffee, bitter chocolate and licorice lining the extended finish.
The 1998 Cabernet Sauvignon's bouquet offers aromas of toasty oak and spice. This mouth-coating, explosive wine is crammed with a myriad of spices, jammy blackberries, sweet cherries, and cherry syrup-drenched fruitcake. This is a hedonist's delight, yet it has loads of tannin that provide a firm, tight, structured finish. (PR)
*Highly Recommended* A ripe, round and graceful Washington Cabernet. A pretty wine that's generous with its plum and black currant flavors, swirling with jasmine, rose petal and vanilla flavors, and echoing fruit, spice and floral notes on the long, supple finish.
Full red-ruby color. Sexy aromas of raspberry, mocha and roast coffee. Juicy, sappy and sweet, with excellent acidity giving shape and definition to the cassis flavor. Very nicely integrated, subtle oakiness adds complexity. Finishes with a whiplash of dark berry flavor. This is less obviously opulent than it was when I tasted it immediately after the bottling last summer, but this superb Cabernet offers terrific potential. 91+ (ST)
