This small vineyard changed ownership during the last year. The 1998 was produced by well-known winemaker, Heidi Barrett. The 1998, made from a 3-acre, 100% Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard planted with the "Grace" clone of Cabernet, is an undeniable success for the vintage. Aged 20 months in wood, it exhibits a dense purple color as well as a pure, sweet nose of black currants, spice, licorice, and tobacco. Soft and full-bodied, with supple tannin, outstanding concentration, and excellent balance, it will drink beautifully for 15+ years. (RP)
Deep, bright red. Complex, inviting scents of black fruits, gravel, earth, leather and tea leaf, along with a balsamic element. Tightly wound and claret-like, conveying a positive herbal element but not especially green in the context of this cool, rainy vintage. Good density and concentration if a bit dusty and dry. Finishes with firm-edged tannins and good lift and length. But this wine is unlikely to become more pliant with additional time in the cellar. (ST)
