Quite a bit of development at the rim. Neat, compact nose with lots of fruit and the merest whiff of cheese. Real lift. Nicely balanced. A bit like the 1995 in being very friendly and drinkable already.

There are 4,000 cases of Cabernet Sauvignon from Staglin's Rutherford vineyard. (They are in the process of building caves under the hills adjacent to the vineyard.) This Cabernet includes a touch of Cabernet Franc in its blends, is aged in 100% French oak, and is quickly becoming a classic example of Rutherford Cabernet.

The 1998 Cabernet Sauvignon is very good. It is all charm and velvety richness, with plenty of succulence in the mid-palate, as well as a gorgeous evolved bouquet of black fruits, cedar wood, spice, and vanilla. There is enough acidity for delineation in this compelling, rich 1998. Drinkable now, it will evolve nicely for 15+ years.

Smooth-textured, with supple plum, currant, anise, vanilla and black cherry flavors that firm up nicely. Holds its focus and shows more harmony and finesse than most from this mixed vintage. 6,100 cases made.
