A big, ripe, expressive style, with a wide range of rich, intense currant, anise, bay leaf, blackberry, cedar and tobacco. Long, complex, persistent aftertaste.
The 1998 Cabernet Sauvignon reveals that vintage's austere, lean style. It displays excellent cedar and black fruits in the nose, and flamboyant plum, blueberry and mineral characteristics on the attack, but then closes down. It is more elegant and less concentrated than the layered, persistent 1999. It will drink well over the next decade.
Red-ruby. Blackberry, cherry, licorice, lead pencil and a flinty nuance on the nose. Bright and delineated, with good sweetness and thrust for a '98. Distinctive cigar box and tobacco flavors. Finishes firmly tannic, with persistent flavors of iron, tobacco and underbrush.
