91 Points Robert Parker
A blend of 51% Cabernet Sauvignon and 49% Shiraz, the 1998 The Signature is more forward and exuberant than the 1996 The Reserve. While not as dense, tannic, or powerful as the latter wine, it is beautifully made, displaying a deep ruby/purple color in addition to a sweet perfume of smoky blackberry fruit and spice, soft tannin, and a long, heady finish. In spite of its sweetness, richness, and forwardness, it has considerable structure underlying all the fat. Anticipated maturity: now-2012
