International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 96

Dark ruby. Roasted cassis, licorice, bitter chocolate and exotic spices on the nose, along with a floral note. Juicy, bright cassis flavor shows a slightly jammy aspect. Good intensity but only moderate real depth of flavor. Finishes with slightly dry tannins. I don't find the density that a barrel sample displayed a year ago.

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. The new owner hopes to slowly augment the production of Vineyard 29 to 2,000 cases in three years, and to 4,000-5,000 cases within five years.

I missed tasting this wine upon release. However, with the strength of Heidi Barrett at the reins and the legacy of the Grace clone, this wine didn't need much help selling. Recent tasting has shown a deeper integration of the flavors away from the complexity noted below by Parker, upon release. The black fruit and licorice are subtly toned down by additional hints of Asian smoked tea and tobacco. The length is there, but it drinks like a claret.
