Winemaker's Notes

The 1998 S.L.V., both in aroma and taste, presents itself like a great and intricate tapestry. In the nose, tendrils of smoke, crushed coriander and green tea embroider a rich fabric of blackberry, dried cherry, earth moistened after a spring rain and hints of lavender. Upon entry, the flavors seem reticent, like shapes in an impressionist painting, but as the wine travels across the palate, beautiful, multidimensional flavors awaken the senses with vivid pictures of tree-ripened black plum. The wine's satiny texture, like warm chocolate, has a firm backbone that resonates through the finish with nuances of cassis, vanilla and clove. Complement this wine with a sumptuous meat such as beef tenderloin or a rich, creamy dish such as puff pastry filled with goat cheese.
