Wine International, January 2005

"Big and spicy on the nose with great peppery fruit, length and balance. A maturing wine with good spicy notes of cinnamon and all spice and dark fruit."

Notes on the year

The 1998 growing season started extremely wet. The water table was replenished but this in turn caused extensive erosion problems, particularly in old terraced vineyards. A cold spring followed with temperatures just above freezing in mid -April. With May came a burst of warmth. A dry, hot summer, with temperatures exceeding 40 º C during the first two weeks of August, was followed by daily showers during the harvest which began on 20n September.

The almost perfect growing season caused great excitement in theDourountil picking began. The rain during the harvest caused dilution of the fermenting musts and a corresponding reduction in the power of the final wines. Hopes were dampened and the overall yield turned out to be the lowest of the decade.
