Much like the '96 the tertiary flavors take center stage, showing sweet earth in addition to more vegetal notes. There's more fruit here also, leading me to believe the '96 might be just past it's prime and the '98 is at the end of its drinking window. Better than the '96, as it still has verve and tenacity, holding on where the other let go.

Still showing beautiful fig, leather and silky tannins on the finish. These wines are so ageable.
