98 Points Robert Parker
An awesome wine, only made in the greatest vintages, is the limited production 1998 Shiraz/Cabernet The Reserve. A blend of 71% Cabernet Sauvignon and 29% Shiraz aged 22 months in small foudres as well as French Bordeaux barrels, is truly great stuff. A black/purple color is accompanied by gorgeous aromas of sweet saddle leather, blackberries, creme de cassis, melted licorice, camphor, and graphite. Full-bodied and pure with a massive, layered mouthfeel, this striking 1998 should drink well for 20-25 years.
