The 1998 Cabernet Sauvignon Pritchard Hill is a fine wine. While it does not reveal much weight, it is a dense plum/purple-colored, big, thick, concentrated effort. Evolved aromas of smoke, cedar, tapenade, blackberries, crème de cassis, and creosote are followed by a lush, full-bodied, voluptuously-textured 1998 exhibiting superb intensity as well as low acid, sweet, pure flavors. This is a dazzling example of extremely ripe Cabernet Sauvignon made under less than ideal conditions. It will drink well upon its release, and over the following two decades.
Good medium ruby. Aromas of roasted blackberry, dark chocolate, licorice, tar and roast coffee. Less expressive than the '99 or '00 but very concentrated for the vintage... Narrows a bit toward the end, but lingers impressively.
Creamy chocolate and currant cookie dough flavors are rich and refreshing, complex and full-bodied, ending with a long, persistent finish.--1998 California Cabernet retrospective. (Web-2009)
