Less impressive than the 1999, the tough-textured 1998 Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot reveals sweetness in the nose, but the narrow flavor profile reveals high levels of tannin. I''m not sure it will ever achieve the proper balance between fruit and structure.

There is a lovely balance to this mature wine. There is still some primary blackcurrant fruit characters running though the wine, but there are plenty of secondary notes of earth and cedar. A delight to drink. Drink in the next 1 to 5 years
