    Medium ruby. Distinctly rustic aromas of meat, leather, black olive, pepper and blood sausage. Dense, rich and aromatic in the mouth, but still a bit youthfully stunted. Very concentrated for this cuvee Finishes with flavors of game and saddle leather, and substantial mouthcoating tannins.

    The 1998 Hermitage, which emerges primarily from such vineyard sites as Greffieux, Vignon, and Bessards, was totally closed when tasted. It displayed a dense ruby/purple color, a hint of blackberry fruit, and a boatload of tannin. However, it finished with a Bordeaux-like austere character. When sampled last year, I predicted this 1998 would be outstanding, but I am backing off. It requires a minimum of 4-5 years of cellaring, but the tough tannin is cause for concern. It should keep for 15-20 years.
