Freemark Abbey Cabernet Sauvignon 1998

Rutherford, Napa Valley, California, United StatesWeedy, earthy tobacco nose with sweaty leather in the rear. Round supple elegant in the mouth with cherry leathery fruit and cedar tobacco. Prune/plum fruit in the finish. A good '98 that will benefit from decanting to reduce the dank compost vegetative character that is quite pronounced when you pull the cork but that dissipates over time.
