J Vineyards & Winery 1998 Late Disgorged Vintage Brut Sparkling (Russian River Valley)

This complex sparkling wine was held back on the lees in the bottle for nearly a decade, which is the meaning of late disgorged. Tasted beside J's 2000 Vintage Brut, it's not as immediately luscious or delicate, having a more scoury edge, although the flavors are similar. The impression is one of ageability. Try holding until after 2010.
