Winemaker's Notes

The 1998 vintage marks the post-phylloxera evolution of Kara's Vineyard. With higher proportions of Merlot and Cabernet Franc, the 1998 Kara's is a complex, Bordeaux-style wine. The wine shows multiple layers of cinnamon spice, cherry and plum, some chocolate, and the sweet scent of cedar. Moderate tannins are soft and elegant, and the black cherry fruit typical of Kara's Vineyard lingers long on the palate. Elegant and well balanced. Bottled unfiltered.

ALCOHOL: 13.2%
