Paradigm Estate Cabernet 1998
The 1998 Cabernet Sauvignon turned out to be a lovely wine. The color is deep ruby-garnet and in the nose I get a lot of black cherry, cassis, spice, cedar, and hints of sweet toasty French oak. In the mouth the wine is very open and lush, well structured with the elegance and balance we have come to expect from this vineyard. The tannins are quite light and dusty. The finish is long with the ripe fruit flavors lasting several minutes. I particularly like the roundness in the mid-palate. It invites you to take another sip."
