Rare Vintage

We had a chance to taste and enjoy a rare vintage yesterday with vacationing in TO. Penfold’s Cabernet Sauvignon 1998, which we brought back with us on our first family vacation to Adelaide Australia. It was a memorable time visiting the winery and restaurant, which by the way has a wine service which I have not seen equalled elsewhere. And the wine we gently nurtured in the wine caller under the stairs has come along beautifully. I was well surprised to feel the acidity structure still firm and tight after all that time. The colour has a ruby glow touched with a hint of burnt umber. The palate had a sweet roundness which reminded me of port wine.

I guess 1998 was a good year!
