Winemaker's Notes

Full ruby color. Pungent, oaky aromas of iron, smoke, nutmeg and mint. Lush red berry fruit complicated by hints of meat, iron and milk chocolate. Finishes with sweet, lush tannins and hints of exotic fruits.

Critical Acclaim

"The 1998 Cabernet Sauvignon (100% Cabernet Sauvignon from 11-year old vines, aged in a combination of one-year old and new French oak) is a fruit-dominated wine with the classic cassis intermixed with a touch of herbs, a slight notion of volatile acidity, and a spicy finish. The wine is full-bodied, ripe, but at the same time, elegant, particularly for a Greenock Creek wine."
