Winemaker's Notes

Blend: 40% Grenache, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Syrah, 5% Mourvedre and Petit Verdot

Critical Acclaim

"Perhaps the finest Clos Mogador to date, this inky purple-colored 1998 (40% Grenache, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Syrah, and 5% Mourvedre and Petit Verdot) boasts a huge nose of blueberries, blackberries, minerals, and vanillin. It is a wine of great purity, intensity, and mass, with extraordinary richness, a blockbuster mid-palate, and a whoppingly long finish. This decadent offering requires a few more years to fully develop."
94 Points

"Rich, deep, and supple as velvet, this inky red is concentrated yet plush, with thick yet graceful flavors of plums, coffee and toast. Accessible now, but it has the muscle to last."
