Purchased 2 bottles from POP's 10/05. (008000) First bottle opened on July 27, 2007 .... simply a wonderful and lovely bottle ... ullage still at bottom neck and cork exhibited no leakage ... wonderful nose on the attack, with chocolate and spice notes. Plenty of fruit left in this lady - cherry, currant, with forest floor accents. Richly textured and complex. This has the stuffing to last at least another decade before declining. Truly wonderful and elegant.

Dinner at Cafe Ponte with Jeff, Jory and Jere. Could have been mistaken for Bordeaux in a blind tasting. Rather closed nose, but opened up after about 30 minutes. This is an elegant wine, more subtlety to it than I had expected. Tannins were smooth and fruit was showing well. I would say that this wine has seen it's best days and it's time to drink up unless you're saving that one last bottle for your Dominus vertical.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
