I've had a bunch of 1998 Aussie cabernets lately. They tend to drink very well being fully smoothed out, but still with delicious fruit and structure from the good vintage.

First sip on this and I thought it was maybe one of the weaker ones... showing its age much more than the others. But some air totally turned it around. As it started to breathe, the age blew off, the structure became clearer, and the flavors really showed off. Started tasting like a Bordeaux that has softened, which I'm proud I picked up, as I noticed later that the label said it was 85% Cab Sauv, the rest Merlot, Cab Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot. Classic bordeaux blend.

Anyhow, it was hard to avoid finishing the bottle, but I do have some left for tonight. Really enjoyable.
