Community Tasting Note

    July 5, 2013 - Much better than my previous bottle. This one had more depth to it. Still not heavy but a great summer red. It has an interesting mix of dark red fruit, sweet orange, and plenty of oak. A medium finish this time.

    Next bottle will be better even. Keep one until 2021 and you will see.

    Believe me, 1998 is an undervalued vintage.
    I have half case and any rush to open a bottle.
    On the other hand have to confess that there's an entire case of that wine in my cellar but 2001. That's even better.
    I've had a very good experiences drinking old 904.
    Give them a try when 25 years old.
