Seppelt Drumborg Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 1998

Cost $21.50 from the cellar door in 2002. And still looking pretty good now. One of those Cabernets that has maintained its fruit characters, with some tobacco and leafy notes. More tobacco I suppose. I wonder if they still make this wine. I had a 1999 Drumborg recently and it had a similar profile; red currants, red capsicum, black olives, cedar and savoury herbs. Lovely balance on the palate; quite fruit sweet really; mouth-filling and very enjoyable. Drink now-2016.
