Spottswoode Cabernet Sauvignon 'estate' 1998

From the winery: tasted 11/10: sweet roses and leather initially. Resolves with a bit of time in the glass to offer a forward nose with ripe fruit characters and a warm allure. Great complexity, and a fairly sweet entry—plums, red licorice, dark cinnamon. We noted that the fruit falls off rather quickly, and some greener, earthier characters emerge. The palate doesn’t quite follow through with the riper characters of the nose. Evolved very quickly after opening. Treat with care—we suggest not decanting—and serve with something savory like a long, slow-cooked stew.
