Low US Retail is updated twice a month and excludes outlier listings. Detailed listings are sourced daily from our partner, Global Wine Stocks, and may include outliers. Note that you can use the 'Report a problem' link which appears after clicking on any individual listing to notify our content team and partner of incorrect wine matches.
Auction prices are based on actual auction results (inclusive of buyerÂ’s premiums) of 750ml bottle sizes only. As auction prices fluctuate from auction to auction and some wines have limited auction activity, the average auction price is updated twice a month and derived from a proprietary algorithm.

Consistent notes. Mature mahogany red color with brick rim. Lovely nose of mineral, mushrooms, leather, and black berry fruit. Similar flavors. Medium/Full bodied with good backbone and acid balance. Silky yet bright texture. Rich and elegant with good intensity but only moderate complexity. Long finish. Fully mature but should hold for another 2 to 3 years.

Dusty, musty nose, full of sour cherry. After a while, the manure and some tar come out. Past its peak.

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.
