MikeL's Guide to WA Wineries
1979 Millenium Cabernet Sauvignon label
News flash! 30-Dec-1999
I have been asked several times in the last few weeks about this wine.
Enough times, that I had to check with the winery -- it is still
available in the winery's tasting room, they have about one case (12
bottles) left. The price is $99/bottle.
Although I don't usually post opinions, I will in this case. I have
tasted this wine each year for the last several at the "Columbia Taste
Of Red" event. In my opinion, it has just past it's peak. Don't get
me wrong, it's a wonderful wine -- just be sure to drink it now, for
your Millenium party -- I will be drinking mine. (I'll have a better
label after that too!)

My apologies for the poor quality, but the label is shellaced to a cabinet,
and is partially obscured by a Columbia Woodburne label. I felt it was too
rare to pass up, regardless of the quality.
