Robert Parker 88
A dark ruby/purple color is followed by an attractive, sexy nose of cedar, black fruits, earth, and oak. This ripe, soft, round 1998 offers appealing levels of concentrated fruit, a silky texture, and immediate accessibility. Enjoy it over the next 4-5 years. It represents a good value, as well as a sleeper of the vintage.
Anticipated maturity: 2001-2006
