A mystery wine if ever there was one. But this was delicious. Seemingly dominated by the Cabernet, elegant and filled with flavor -- cassis, cedar, leather, licorice. Opaque color, full body, nice finish. We haven't seen this wine around since it was first tasted, but it's definitely worth seeking out. - WB Team 2002-01-16
