International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 96

Saturated red. Aromas of cherry, raspberry, smoked meat, roasted tomato, earth and tobacco leaf; deeper and more complex than the Napanook bottling. A step up in complexity, vibrancy and precision of flavor. Silky and fairly deep, with slightly truffley chocolate and tobacco flavors. Finishes with big but suave tannins and a hint of licorice. This offers rather powerful material for the year but nonetheless seems a bit dry next to the '99.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 142

The 1998 Dominus's dark ruby/plum color is accompanied by aromas of licorice, earth, plums, black fruits, and underbrush. While this medium-bodied 1998 possesses good depth, a spicy, open-knit complexity, and ripe tannin, it does not have the size, depth, or dimension of the previous eight vintages. Nevertheless, it is an elegant, Bordeaux-styled red for drinking over the next decade.

Wine Spectator Author: James Laube

Earthy, elegant and refined Cabernet blend, delivering layers of currant, tar, black cherry, cedar, coffee and anise, all sharply focused and framed by just the right amount of tannin. 6,000 cases made.

Pleasant dark fruit notes on the nose get overshadowed by the palate's complete lack of balance. Second bottle in a year that shows this year didn't reach its potential.
