International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 96

Ruby-red. Ripe aromas of cassis, currant, shoe polish, loam and graphite. Supple, juicy and harmonious, with noteworthy sweetness and inner-mouth florals for the year. Finishes with smooth, ripe tannins and excellent length. This has turned out very well. An extremely impressive '98.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 142

The spectacular, full-bodied 1998 Cabernet Sauvignon (2,000 cases from a blend of 88% Cabernet Sauvignon and 12% Cabernet Franc) possesses great character, richness, and black currant fruit intermixed with licorice, tobacco, and smoke. While not as opulent as some vintages, it is exceptionally concentrated, long, and reminiscent of a ripe Bordeaux from a top vintage.

Wine Spectator Author: James Laube

Well-proportioned, with a mix of generous plum, black cherry and blackberry fruit, anise, sage and cedar. The texture is supple and polished, with a long, complex finish. 2,300 cases made.
