Henry's Drive Cabernet Sauvignon 1998
Dark garnet. The fresh bell pepper notes that dominated the nose on this wine in its youth have turned to roasted peppers, with complementary forest-y sorts of aromas and a suggestion of nori, all making for a greenish cast that is actually quite attractive (to this Cab Franc-loving taster, anyway). Just a wee bit of warmth doesn't detract or clash. Rich, yes, but also dry; far drier, in fact, than the Cabernets Sarah and Sparky made for the Marquis-Philips label during this same era. Liqueurlike but not hot on the finish.
