Premium Wines | 1998 Shiraz
The fourth vintage released by the Oliver family was produced from estate grown specially selected parcels of Old Vine Shiraz.
- Robert M. Parker, Wine Advocate - Issue 127, 95/100
Potentially the finest effort of this trio, the saturated black/purple/blue-colored 1998 Shiraz offers sensational aromas of blueberries, blackberries, and cassis, a huge, super-concentrated palate, fabulous purity, sweet tannin, and well-integrated acidity. While not yet as complex as the 1997 or 1996, the 1998 has more to it and should prove to be the best wine after another 2-3 years of cellaring. It should age well for two decades.
