Jones Family Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 1998

Winemaker's Notes:

This wine is red-ruby in color. It has nicely developed ripe fruit aromas of blackberry and cherry with a hint of red licorice. In the mouth, it again shows ripeness as well as good length. The flavors are consistent with the aromas. Moderate oak level adds to the complexity without overpowering the fruit. It has some spiciness and sweet toasty oak in the mouth. Ripe Cabernet flavor is persistent and lasts several minutes. The balance of all the flavor components is quite good. An exciting wine from a challenging vintage.
