Clear, garnet color with the slightest suggestion of bricking around the edges. Definite black fruit aroma on the nose accompanied by vanilla/oaky bouquet. Currant fruit on the tip of the tongue, but no real secondary flavors. Very much resolved tanning and acid. As I had subsequent tastes with my meal (lamb chops with a Late Harvest Zinfandel/Mint sauce) the flavors of the wine seemed to move more towards a candied fruit profile. Clearly, this wine plateaued some years ago.

Dense core with a rim edging towards brick. Initial aromas of tamari, cola nut, blackberry and black cherry gives way to a bouquet of prune, leather, dusty earth, and a hint of camphor. The palate entry is still youthful, hanging on to the fresh bla... Chris Greene. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 1998 Merryvale Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve 750ml
