This is what they say about it on their website:

'This rich, deeply concentrated and powerful artisanal wine will develop additional complexity over three to five years. If opened young, it should be decanted prior to serving.The blend for the 2002 Oculus is 50% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvingon, 15% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot.'

It's sold out for the year, so if you can find a bottle or two, pick it up and fast.

P.S. I am about to run out and see if I can pick up a few bottles right now.

Our Mission: The Black Winer strives to expose African Americans [and others] to wines, without the flair, stuffiness, and airs of elitism and snobbery that you get from sommeliers and high level wine enthusiasts. We believe in finding something that you like the taste of, outside of the basic brands that you have been force-fed over the years through a combination of ethnically targeted advertising, and what people in your family have historically been drinking.
