Our Cabernet Sauvignon is renowned for its refined, focused style, one that reveals itself slowly over many years. The 1998 Cabernet Sauvignon, coming from a cooler vintage in Napa Valley, remains true to style. Even as it settles into its second decade in the bottle, the wine retains a freshness and an expression of place. Notes of sage, chocolate, and espresso bean still dominate, along with the noble signs of age—cedar, softening tannins, and a caramel note on the finish. Though it indeed has potential to rest longer in the cellar, it will surely be enjoyed by anyone opening it now.
