International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 96

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.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 142

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. With superstar vineyard manager David Abreu, and highly respected wine consultant Heidi Barrett making the wines, Jones Family Vineyard has already achieved a large following.

A big, ripe, expressive style, with a wide range of rich, intense currant, anise, bay leaf, blackberry, cedar and tobacco. Long, complex, persistent aftertaste. 790 cases made.

Medium body at best. Fruit appears to be fading compared to the year previous. Still a strong cherry component with light cedar. Might be at the end of it's life.
