1998 Richard Partridge Cabernet Sauvignon
A forty-eight hour cold soak was followed by extended maceration. This wine was aged for 20 months in new and two year old Seguin Moreau French Oak, and bottled unfined and unfiltered.
84% Cabernet Sauvignon (Sacrashe and Steltzner Vineyards) and 16% Merlot (Snowden Vineyard)
Dark, brilliant ruby. Forward, expressive aromas of cherries, complimented by structured, rich red berry fruit flavors and creamy vanilla spice.
