Very disappointing wine. Perhaps in an awkward stage, but this wine, while having some light-weight vestige of the usual attractive Bordeaux cassis and cedar character, was weak, watery, and hollow, with bitter tannins. I guess you pay for the name to some extent, but this wine struck us as insanely overpriced at $26. - WB Team 2002-04-12
