Exotically spicy and embracingly soft, with hidden pockets of chocolate, cassis, sweet tobacco and succulent black fruit. Our Headwater (Pigman) Vineyard is planted to four Bordeaux varietals, enabling us to create a blend each year reflecting the strengths of the vintage. 1998 was one of the rare years in which each grape block showed strong varietal character and unique flavors.
The 1998 Cabernet Sauvignon is augmented by small amounts of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Malbec. Tremendously complex and delicious now, the aromas of this wine will unfold and change over the next 10-12 years. A case of Cabernet now . . .for many wonderful evenings of pleasure in front of the fireplace.
