TN: 1998 Mayacamas Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon

Purchased on sale for $60. This estate was started in 1889 and owns 475 hillside acres. 1998 was a cooler below average vintage in Napa. This normally contains 10-15% of Cab Franc and Merlot. Decanted 4 hours before dinner. Compared to 1998 Mouton and Haut Brion. Deep red color. Green pepper aromas. Sweet jammy red fruit. Notes of ripe cherries, licorice and cranberries. Smooth finish. 91-92 points
