Winemaker's Notes:

The 1998 Special Selection Cabernet Sauvignon is a result of a blending of the finest grapes produced from the 11 Olive Hill Estate Vineyards.

In 1998, the vineyard produced a lighter crop, producing exceptional flavors. This is a wonderful wine with intense flavors of black currant, cassis and rich dark chocolate.

Two years of aging in new premium French oak barrels softened the generous tannins which provides a long balanced finish.

With proper cellaring, this special wine promises maturing complexity for many years to come.
