Stonegate Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 1998

Winemaker's Notes:

1998 Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley Wine Enthusiast: "You have those beautiful Napa tannins, acidity and structure, and fine toasty oak." Rating: 90. Vintage 1998: 1998 was atypical for Napa Valley. With unseasonable rain in June, the growing season was very cool. Then in a total reversal, October brought an Indian summer with warm, dry days and cool nights. The extra hang time provided excellent fruit/acid balance with an average sized crop. 1998 Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley This full-bodied, Bordeaux blend exhibits a deep brick red color, and possesses a nose with hints of tobacco, cassis and earth tones. The flavors are a mouthful of fruit, mushroom, cedar and toasty oak. On the finish, the fruit intensity lingers with a firm tannin structure. Enjoy now or cellar for up to ten years. ! Price Details Base Price: $40.00 These bottle sizes are available: Normal (750mL): $40.00 Magnum (1.5L): $80.00 The perfect gift to share! Two standard bottles in this convenient 1.5 liter. Jeroboam/Double Magnum (3.0L) $160.00 This delightful size, comparable to six bottles, easily servers a dinner party of 15 to 18 persons.
