This wine is drinking sensationally right now. Deeply colored with layers of rich, chewy Cabernet fruit wrapped in a complex mix of Creme de Cassis, mint, violets, smoky oak. Amazing balance and grace for a wine with this much oomph. As much as I loved the great 1995 Dehlinger "Bordeaux Blend," this one may be even better. I wish I had another couple of cases of this gem tucked away for my old age. - HK 2005-04-29
