Winemaker's Notes: The most broad-shouldered, richest Renaissance bottling in 1998, this wine will reward patience, or savor it now by decanting a few hours before serving. Stunning depth of flavor, laser-like purity of expression, uncompromising. A classic.

There is a very limited quantity of this outstanding wine! Now is a good time to put this into your cellar.

From Alder Yarrow - July, 2015

Dark garnet in the glass, but clearly headed towards a ruby hue, this wine smells of smoked meat and crushed stones. In the mouth, dark and earthy flavors of cherry and forest floor mix with crushed stone and a hint of exotic woods. Powdery tannins coat the mouth and linger with notes of dried plum in the finish. A blend of 58% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Merlot, 13% Petit Verdot, 6% Cabernet Franc, 5% Sangiovese, and 4% Malbec.

Score: 'Around' 9
