1998 Black Opal Cabernet Sauvignon
South Eastern Australia
WB Rating: 83

Alcohol by volume: 13.0%
Price at time of purchase: $ (Trader Joe's, Costco.)
Type: Cabernet / Bordeaux
Principal varietal(s): 100% Cab

A pleasant, peppery, inky-dark cab, with an initial 'berry' impression. Not a spectacular wine, but it compares favorably to a great many mid-range Bordeauxs and California cabs. At this price, it makes an excellent choice for your 'everyday' vino. Its a good thing we have the Aussies to bring us affordable wines. - WB Team 2000-05-04
