87 Points Robert Parker

Revealing a dense ruby/purple color, the 1998 Cabernet/Merlot (81% of the former and 19% of the latter, aged 14 months in American oak) exhibits spicy vanilla notes in its bouquet. Grapy, ripe, straightforward flavors are seductive, but uncomplicated. Drink it over the next 5-6 years.

86 Points James Halliday

Medium to full red-purple; the bouquet opens with concentrated dark berry fruit then shows distinct earthy notes. The medium- to full-bodied palate does much the same, with sweet, dark berry fruit on the mid-palate followed by persistent, slightly dry, tannins on the finish. Drink to 2008.
